Caldecott

 

The Caldecott Medal (Hall of Fame - 150 books) is given each year by the Association for Library Service to Children to the illustrator of the most distinguished American picture book for children. Most years two or three books  receive Caldecott Honor awards. Reading levels are  picture books through middle school reading level.

Students in this club may read any Caldecott Award book (Medal or Honor). Students write the books read on the WHITE Caldecott reading logs available in the Library. Kindergarten, first, and second graders test after each 10 books. Third, fourth, and fifth graders test after each 25 books. The tester asks questions about two books from the student’s list. Questions are simple, so a student who has read the books will pass. Students receive a small prize in front of their class after the completion of each list.

Caldecott books are together in the Easy section of the Library. They have a NEON ORANGE sticker with the words “Randolph Caldecott Award” and a medal shaped logo.
