Librarians Talk Children's Books: Our Favorite Caldecott Medal and Honor Books

The Caldecott Medal is award given by Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association each year to “the distinguished American picture book for children”.  Each year a Medal winner is chosen with one to five runner-ups given a “Caldecott Honor” distinction.

Some of the most famous Caldecott Winners books include Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendek, Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey, The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats and The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg.

This week we present some of our favorite Caldecott Medal and Honor Books that you can request at your local library.

Checkout our Librarians Talk Children’s Books YouTube playlist with a new video added every Saturday afternoon.
