  1. Children’s Book Awards:The Caldecott Medal Laura Alger LSIS 5525/Assignment #9 NCCU/Fall 2012

  2. The Caldecott Medal

  3. The Caldecott Medal • Basic information: • The Caldecott Medal was named in honor of nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph Caldecott. It is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children. • -American Library Association

  4. Caldecott Medal: When identifying a distinguished American picture book for childrenCriterion are considered by members of the committee, ALA requires: Excellence of execution in the artistic technique employed; Excellence of pictorial interpretation of story, theme, or concept; Appropriateness of style of illustration to the story, theme or concept; Delineation of plot, theme, characters, setting, mood or information through the pictures; Excellence of presentation in recognition of a child audience. The only limitation to graphic form is that the form must be one which may be used in a picture book. The book must be a self-contained entity, not dependent on other media (i.e., sound, film or computer program) for its enjoyment. Each book is to be considered as a picture book. The committee is to make its decision primarily on the illustration, but other components of a book are to be considered especially when they make a book less effective as a children’s picture book. Such other components might include the written text, the overall design of the book, etc -American Library Association
