Mock Caldecott

Each year the American Library Association recognizes the artist of the most distinguished picture book of the year with the prestigious Caldecott Medal. Over the next few weeks, fifth graders at WES will be using the criteria of the ALA to evaluate ten incredible picture books. Students will examine the artistic technique, the pictorial representation of the story, the overall presentation, and how the illustrations support the theme, plot, characters, and mood of the text. The winner of the Caldecott Medal will be announced on January 30th.  The fifth graders can’t wait to see if one of their contenders is selected as the medalist or as a Caldecott Honor Book. Stay tuned! #WeAreRSU18 #WESproud18
