2012 Caldecott Winners!

I am so excited about this year's Caldecott winner! Having looked at this title a couple of months ago, I have it slated for an upcoming preschool storytime here at the library. I love the way the facial expressions and body language communicate emotion in this wordless picture book. The illustrations are just fun & attractive, too. So, it's with great enjoyment that I post the cover of this year's Caldecott winner and announce that HMMPL owns this lovely title! You'll want to check it out.

A Ball for Daisy by Chris Raschka

Three honors were also named :

Blackout by John Rocco, author and  illustrator:


A unique picture book, Grandpa Green written and illustrated by Lane Smith

And finally, Me ... Jane by Patrick McDonnell, a story about Jane Goodall.
