Calling Caldecott…and a special year

Among other “mock” blogs we’ll be pointing you to throughout the season, make sure to stop at Calling Caldecott, now out of it’s gate over at the Horn Book.

Did you know that it’s the 75th Anniversary of the Caldecott Medal?  Check out the incredible logo that Brian Selznick made for ALA, and the long line-up of ways to celebrate, including a bundle-special …if you purchase the ALSC Newbery & Caldecott Mock Elections Toolkit now through November, you’ll get free access to the accompanying archived webinar by Steven Engelfried (this year’s Newbery chair!).  No excuse not to try your hand, this year, on starting a Mock Newbery or Caldecott group!

The Caldecott Award is administered by the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association (ALA). The 75thAnniversary illustration and logo copyright © 2012 by Brian Selznick. Used with permission of  ALSC/ALA.
