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.



Day of Dialog | Brooklyn
Coinciding with Brooklyn Book Festival, this special-engagement event on September 15 will feature both Festival and metropolitan-area authors with panels modeled on Library Journal and School Library Journal’s long-running and annually sold-out Day of Dialog events. Get the inside scoop on the hottest new books—plus book giveaways and author signings!


  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.
