Bound to be a sure-fire attraction for children and their families, the books listed here include titles dating as far back as 1922 for those receiving the Newberry Award and to 1938 for those receiving the Caldecott Awards. Entries, which include the "honors" winners as well as those receiving the medal, include title, author and publisher and a precise summary of content and themes. Articles explain the authorization process and terms and the art (and science) behind the picture book. The collection closes with lists of media used in Caldecott picture books and a brief but concise glossary. This is invaluable to teachers and librarians for quick reference, collection work, curriculum develop and readers' advisories, but parents and others concerned with what children read should also find the listings very helpful.
