Every year, the Association for Library Service to Children awards the
prestigious Caldecott Medal to the artist of the most distinguished American
picture book for children. Some of those books are probably already on your
bookshelves at home – they’re the ones with the gold sticker on the front
featuring a rendition of the medal. Many of these books also can be found at
the Spokane Public Library and other libraries in your area.
The award was named in honor of Randolph Caldecott, a 19th-century English illustrator. It’s his birthday this month so Auntie’s Bookstore is having a Caldecott Storytime on Saturday.
Come down to enjoy the amazing artwork as we read some Caldecott Medal and Caldecott Honor books. All Ages. 11 a.m., Auntie’s Bookstore, Children’s section, 402 W. Main Ave. Free. (509) 838-0206.
What are your some of your family’s favorite books this year?
