Caldecott Project

For the sake of being inspired to write, and in order to be truly well read in the world of children’s literature, I am reading each of the Caldecott Medal medal picwinning books and jotting down my impressions.  Please take these posts as opportunities to be reminded of the kids’ book greats.  Perhaps consider reading them again for yourself or, better yet, to a child!
