Beekle, Radiant Child, and A Different Pond have all won the Caldecott Award or the Caldecott Honor. What is the award? "It is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children." -- from the Caldecott page of ALSC.
This year, second grade students at our school chose Honeybee: The Busy Life of Apis Mellifera by Candace Fleming & Eric Rohmann as our Mock Caldecott Winner.
The students also loved the following books that were our Caldecott Honor books: Lift by Minh Lê illustrated by Dan Santat, We Are Water Protectors by Carole Lindstrom illustrated by Michaela Goede, and Hike by Pete Oswald.
Mrs. Brunelle and fourth and fifth grade students manage this blog. We are crazy about books!
