Caldecott Medal LibGuideCaldecott Medal LibGuide
The Caldecott Medal, named for English illustrator Randolph Caldecott, is an award given once a year to the illustrator of "the most distinguished American picture book for children published by an American publisher in the United States in English during the preceding year" (ALSC, 2008). Caldecott Honor awards may also be given to illustrators of distinguished picture books; the illustrations can be of any type or medium as long as they are the original work of the illustrator. "Children" is defined broadly as up to and including age fourteen, and some Caldecott Medal and Honor books are graphic novels meant for a teen audience (as with this year's Caldecott Honor recipient This One Summer). Caldecott Medal and Honor awards are given every year in January by the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC). -- Added:6/16/2015
