January is my favorite month of the year! Not only is it a chance for new beginnings, but also a chance to reflect back…especially on some amazing books!
Every January, the American Library Association selects one book to win one of the biggest book awards of the year – the Caldecott medal (not to mention some other amazing awards – I’ll blog on that later!). This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Caldecott medal, which is an award given to the illustrator of the most outstanding contribution to children’s literature.
Lessons this week for students in Kindergarten, first and second grade will focus on learning more about this prestigious award.
