Bad Bye, Good Bye - The Horn Book

Bad Bye, Good Bye - The Horn Book | All Things Caldecott | Scoop.it
You know that feeling that you’ve missed something? Well, I had that feeling last week when I pulled out the titles for my class’s mock Caldecott. I blithely grabbed Bad Bye, Good Bye and thought, “Uh-oh.

Nana in the City - The Horn Book

Nana in the City - The Horn Book | All Things Caldecott | Scoop.it
This is a JUST RIGHT kind of book. Just the right size; just the right tone; just the right scope of experience/adventure for the audience. How does Lauren Castillo accomplish this just-rightness in the art? 1) Through the use of color. In the beginning she communicates the noise and smells and sheer overwhelming-ness of the big …
Margie Culver's insight:

This title along with The Troublemaker by Lauren Castillo this year are remarkable.

Neighborhood Sharks - The Horn Book

Neighborhood Sharks - The Horn Book | All Things Caldecott | Scoop.it
I didn’t look very carefully at Neighborhood Sharks when it first came in to the office, mostly because I’ve got such a soft spot for harbor seals (close relatives to elephant seals, the preferred prey for the great white sharks in this book).

While we took a short break over the holidays, you can bet that the members of the Real Caldecott Committee did not.

The year in review - The Horn Book

The year in review - The Horn Book | All Things Caldecott | Scoop.it
What a difference a year makes. Last year’s picture book crop included such a strong group of front runners that it was possible to…no, not predict, but at least anticipate some of the Caldecott choices. This year, it seems to me, the field is WIDE OPEN. And this year’s committee has quite a job in front of them. …

Waaay back in January 2014, I saw this book. Hadley Hooper’s art blew me away. It still does. (And here Joanna Rudge Long reviews it for The Horn Book.) Henri Matisse is presented as a youngster, growing up in a dreary gray town. His mother introduces color to his life as she paints plates, arranges …
