What’s Your Favorite Caldecott?


In recognition of the Caldecott Medal’s 75th anniversary, librarians at School Library Journal‘s Leadership Summit shared their favorite winners and discuss beloved picture books that were overlooked for this honor but still stand the test of time.

  1. I’ve enjoyed reading and viewing all of this year’s Caldecott winners, particularly Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett since I’m a knitter and lover of all things yarn! I used Bookr, a fun FlickrToy, to create a short photobook that could be used to introduce Extra Yarn to students. Everyone is welcome to use it with their classes. http://www.web2teachingtools.com/bookr.html
