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.



Designing the Future: A Design Thinking Workshop
LJ Designing the Future WorkshopThis full day workshop draws upon a toolkit created by IDEO—an award-winning global design firm that takes a human-centered, design-based approach to helping organizations in the public and private sectors innovate—to guide you through the process of understanding design thinking and put it into practice at your library.


  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.
