I just wanted to post the latest Caldecott Medal Winner since I am currently reading and reviewing all these books! From the ALA website . . .
The 2009 Caldecott Medal winner is The House in the Night, illustrated by Beth Krommes, written by Susan Marie Swanson (Houghton Mifflin Company)
Richly detailed black-and-white scratchboard illustrations expand this timeless bedtime verse, offering reassurance to young children that there is always light in the darkness. Krommes' elegant line, illuminated with touches of golden watercolor, evoke the warmth and comfort of home and family, as well as the joys of exploring the wider world.
I've updated my Caldecott Medal Winners post to incorporate this new winner!
