Can We Get These Folks a Sticker, Please? - The Horn Book

Can We Get These Folks a Sticker, Please? - The Horn Book | All Things Caldecott | Scoop.it
                ROBIN SMITH: Over the years, I have heard people moaning that certain illustrators had never won the Caldecott award and would never win. To my innocent ears, that seemed unfair. As I learned more about picture books, one thing did become clear to me: certain very good illustrators never seemed to …

This is an interesting and important discussion.

Gordon Parks: How the Photographer Captured Black and White America - The Horn Book

Gordon Parks: How the Photographer Captured Black and White America - The Horn Book | All Things Caldecott | Scoop.it
KT: I was excited to see this book come in because I have long been a fan of Gordon Parks’s photography, and I was eager to learn more about him. Carole Boston Weatherford’s book is less a biography than it is the story of how he found his calling. When he was twenty-five, he was …

My Pen - The Horn Book

My Pen - The Horn Book | All Things Caldecott | Scoop.it
There are few things more exciting than a picture-book artist creating in an unexpected style. Christopher Myers, winner of the 2015 Coretta Scott King Book Award for his illustrations for Firebird, written by Misty Copeland, provides a fanciful exploration of creativity with pen and ink drawings in My Pen. The intrigue begins on the book …

My Bike - The Horn Book

My Bike - The Horn Book | All Things Caldecott | Scoop.it
Ah, one of my favorite subjects: picture books for the very young. This year some of my most-loved books fall into that category, including several we’re talking about on Calling Caldecott this fall. We all know that these books face an uphill battle when it comes to Caldecott recognition. But that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve …

It's Only Stanley - The Horn Book

It's Only Stanley - The Horn Book | All Things Caldecott | Scoop.it
Pursuant to Robin and KT’s post on Wednesday, each of us will have his or her own list of persistent omissions from the Caldecott rolls; mine is topped by Eric Carle, Rosemary Wells — and our subject for today, Jon Agee. Why not Jon Agee? At the Horn Book at Simmons Colloquium earlier this month, …

Wolfie the Bunny - The Horn Book

Wolfie the Bunny - The Horn Book | All Things Caldecott | Scoop.it
With Wolfie the Bunny we welcome another new-sibling picture book into the world — this one with tons of humor and age-appropriate drama, and with plenty of child appeal in both text and art. (And carrots. Lots of carrots.) What will the Real Committee be looking at? I imagine they will ooh and aah over the actual cover (under the jacket) …

A huge winner with students...
