2012 Caldecott Medal Announced
Each year the American Library Association awards a Caldecott Medal to the best illustrated children's book published the previous year. This year's winner is A BALL FOR DAISY by Chris Raschka. The story unfolds visually as there are no words! This week I shared the book with students in kindergarten through fifth grade. I enjoyed them telling the story aloud page by page or just watching it using their imaginations and ahhing and oohing in all the right places.
A beautiful book for kids of all ages and for dog lovers. Congratulations to Chris Raschka on his second well deserved Caldecott medal.
