Please join us TONIGHT, Monday, Dec. 21, at 7 p.m as we read together all of our finalists and then vote for our Caldecott Club Book of the Year !
We'll be reading some of the best-illustrated books published this year, using our ELMO document camera, projector and big screen so everyone can see all the wonderful details in each book. These books are our finalists -- the ones that have won at previous Caldecott Club sessions this year. We'll then vote on our favorite, just like the real Caldecott Committee will be doing in a couple of weeks.
The Caldecott Medal is given annually by the American Library Association to the best-illustrated book for children ages birth-14, and our Caldecott Club finalists include picture books, an illustrated non-fiction book, and even a graphic novel. As usual, lemonade and cookies will be served, courtesy of the Friends of the Takoma Park Maryland Library. All ages are welcome at tonight's program, which is a wonderful way to spend some time together reading great books!
