The Newbery and Caldecott Awards: A Guide to the Medal and Honor Books. 1996 Edition.
Association for Library Service to Children, Chicago, IL.
This edition of the guide to Newbery and Caldecott Awards provides an annotated listing of winning children's books since the inception of the awards (1922 and 1938 respectively) through the 1996 selections. The annotations serve as a reliable source for collection development, reader's advisory, curriculum development, and other programs. The 1996 edition celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Newbery Award with an essay by Frederic G. Melcher II which provides a personal look at his grandfather, Frederic A. Melcher, who initiated both the Newbery and Caldecott awards. To address technical and administrative issues, an essay by Bette J. Peltola discusses the intricate terms and definitions that have evolved for both medals. Updated notes on the media used to illustrate Caldecott Medal and Honor Books are included. The guide also includes pictures of the current medalists and remarks from committee chairs. (AEF)
