Everything You Ever Wanted to Know and More About the Caldecott Process

 For those of you who are interested in the Caldecott award process, I have the ultimate resource. The following link was kindly given to me by Laura M. Schulte-Cooper (Program Officer, Communications, Association for Library Service to Children / a division of the American Library Association). At this link, under the heading Committee Resources, click on Caldecott Medal manual. There you will find everything from the history of the Caldecott award to what goes on at meetings to the presentation of metals. And you’ll learn the roles and responsibilities of committee members. You will also see sample nomination forms and much more. The manual is lengthy, but well worth a look. Super interesting!
