Caldecott Awards

A bunch of awards were announced by the American Library Association this week, including the young adult book awards and the Caldecott book illustration award for most distinguished American picture book for children. This year's Caldecott winner was Beth Krommes for The House in the Night, written by Susan Marie Swanson and published by Houghton Mifflin Company.

While I'm at it, I'd like to include the cover of this book of art from children's illustrators. Love this picture!

An illustration by Randolph Caldecott (the person the award is named after). He lived from 1846-1886.
