Caldecott Medal Winners

As I mentioned in my Reading Resolutions post, I have decided that I have a personal goal of reading all book award winners. This year, my goal is to read and review all books that have received the Caldecott Medal. Since I am about to head out to the library, I thought that I had better get my list together! I also wanted to have the complete list here on my blog for my own personal reference and even for the interest of my readers.

According to the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), the Randolph Caldecott Medal, or known as simply the Caldecott Medal, is "awarded annually to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children published in English in the United States." It is awarded by the ALSC. Honor books are also noted for those that do not receive the award, but were considered for it. For more information, I would suggest that you visit the ALSC by clicking here. (Note: The webpage is showing up a little odd for me. If you click on this link and only see a list on the side, simply keep scrolling down and you will get to the information.)

At this time, I am only going to include the winners of the award since its inception in 1938. I may or may not highlight the honor books at a later date. If you are currently interested in these, you can visit the link above. ***DRUMROLL*** The winners of the Randolph Caldecott Medal are:
