2013 Cauli-cott Medal Winner

The American Library Association's (ALA's) Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) awards the Caldecott Medal "to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children."  We think this is a terrific award, and we wondered in my Library could give something similar to a local illustrator/author.  So we created the (drum roll, if you please) . . .
