Newbery and Caldecott Trivia and More for Every Day of the Year.
This book offers assistance to those wishing to introduce children to the best literature, for it highlights memorable works and their creators and, as an added bonus, provides glimpses into the history and eponymous figures behind the Newbery and Caldecott Awards. The book uses a calendar arrangement of more than 1,000 "fun facts" as it provides easy-reach footholds for starting literacy research. The trivia facts are arranged chronologically in the book--whenever possible, specific facts correspond with the subject's birthday, book publication date, or other pertinent date. Additional facts are scattered throughout the book. An indispensable tool, the book offers the background information and colorful details that encourage not only reading, but reading the best books available. Appended are lists of the Newbery and Caldecott winners. (Also contains an extensive reference list, a name index, and a title index.) (NKA)
