Caldecott Medal

The Caldecott Medal was named in honor of nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph Caldecott. It is awarded annually, since 1938, by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children. Beside the Caldecott Medal, the committee awards a variable number of citations to worthy runners-up, called the Caldecott Honors or Caldecott Honor Books. We have compiled here a list of just some of the many Medal and Honor winners.

The 2013 Caldecott Medal winner is This Is Not My Hat, written and illustrated by Jon Klassen, published by Candlewick Press.

In this darkly humorous tale, a tiny fish knows it’s wrong to steal a hat. It fits him just right. But the big fish wants his hat back. Klassen’s controlled palette, opposing narratives and subtle cues compel readers to follow the fish and imagine the consequence.

“With minute changes in eyes and the slightest displacement of seagrass, Klassen’s masterful illustrations tell the story the narrator doesn’t know,” Caldecott Chair Sandra Imdieke said.

Raschka.

In a wordless book with huge children’s appeal, Chris

possession is accidently destroyed.  With brilliant economy of line and

tale of loss, recovery and friendship.

“Chris Raschka’s deceptively simple paintings of watercolor,
gouache and ink explore universal themes of love and loss that permit thousands
of possible variants,” said Caldecott Medal Committee Chair Steven L. Herb. A
Ball for Daisy holds as many unique stories as there will be young readers and
re-readers.

The 2004 Caldecott Medal
winner was The Man Who Walked Between the Towers, illustrated and written by
Mordicai Gerstein. This true story recounts the daring feat of a spirited
young Frenchman who walked a tightrope between the World Trade Center twin
towers in 1974. His joy in dancing on a thin wire high above Manhattan and the
awe of the spectators in the streets far below is captured in exquisite ink and
oil paintings that perfectly complement the spare, lyrical text. “Gerstein's
skillful compositions and dramatic use of perspective make this a book that
literally takes your breath away,” said Caldecott Award Chair Kathy East. “Two
ingenious gatefolds and horizontal and vertical framing put the reader high in
the air with this daredevil performer and emphasize the vast space between the
towers and their astounding height. Gerstein ensures that this extraordinary
event is imprinted on readers' minds and creates a powerful, transforming
memory.”

The 2002 Caldecott Medal
winner was The Three Pigs by David Wiesner. This picture book
begins placidly (and familiarly) enough, with three pigs collecting materials
and going off to build houses of straw, sticks, and bricks. But the wolf’s
huffing and puffing blows the first pig right out of the story . . . and into
the realm of pure imagination. The transition signals the start of a
freewheeling adventure with characteristic David Wiesner effects—cinematic
flow, astonishing shifts of perspective, and sly humor, as well as episodes of
flight.

Satisfying both as a story
and as an exploration of the nature of story, The Three Pigs takes visual
narrative to a new level. Dialogue balloons, text excerpts, and a wide variety
of illustration styles guide the reader through a dazzling fantasy universe to
the surprising and happy ending. Fans of Tuesday’s frogs and Sector 7’s clouds
will be captivated by old friends—the Three Pigs of nursery fame and their
companions—in a new guise.

The 2000 Caldecott Medal
winner was Joseph Had a Little Overcoat by Simms Taback. Joseph
had a little overcoat, but it was full of holes—just like this book! When
Joseph's coat got too old and shabby, he made it into a jacket. But what did he
make it into after that? And after that?

of this book, they can use the die-cut holes to guess what Joseph will be
making next from his amazing overcoat, while they laugh at the bold, cheerful
artwork and learn that you can always make something, even out of nothing.

to Sector 7 by David Wiesner. Sector 7 tells the story of a small boy on a
class trip to the Empire State Building who is transported by a friendly cloud
to Sector 7, a great cloud factory high in the sky. Once there, they conspire
with clouds that are bored with their shapes and long for a new way to express
their individuality. "Wiesner's striking and dramatic watercolors
transform the childhood fantasy of figures in the clouds into an imaginative
story without words. He skillfully leads us from reality to fantasy and back
again through the use of expressive body language, layered and boxed
illustrations, and impeccable pacing and placement."

The 1999 Caldecott Medal
winner was Snowflake Bentley, Illustrated by Mary Azarian, text by
Jacqueline Briggs Martin. From the time he was a small boy, Wilson Bentley
saw snowflakes as small miracles. And he determined that one day his camera
would capture for others the wonder of the tiny crystal. Bentley's enthusiasm
for photographing snowflakes was often misunderstood in his time, but his
patience and determination revealed two important truths: no two snowflakes are
alike; and each one is startlingly beautiful. His story is gracefully told and
brought to life in lovely woodcuts, giving children insight into a soul who had
not only a scientist's vision and perseverance but a clear passion for the
wonders of nature. "Of all the forms of water the tiny six-pointed
crystals of ice called snow are incomparably the most beautiful and
varied." -- Wilson Bentley.

The 1998 Caldecott Medal
winner was Rapunzel by Paul O. Zelinsky.

Surely among the most
original and gifted of children's book illustrators, Paul O. Zelinsky has once
again with unmatched emotional authority, control of space, and narrative
capability brought forth a unique vision for an age-old tale. Few artists at
work today can touch the level at which his paintings tell a story and exert
their hold.

Zelinsky's retelling of Rapunzel reaches
back beyond the Grimms to a late-seventeenth-century French tale by Mlle. la
Force, who based hers on the Neapolitan tale Petrosinella in a
collection popular at the time. The artist understands the story's fundamentals
to be about possessiveness, confinement, and separation, rather than about
punishment and deprivation. Thus the tower the sorceress gives Rapunzel here is
not a desolate, barren structure of denial but one of esoteric beauty on the
outside and physical luxury within. And the world the artist creates through
the elements in his paintings the palette, control of light, landscape,
characters, architecture, interiors, costumes speaks to us not of an ugly witch
who cruelly imprisons a beautiful young girl, but of a mother figure who
powerfully resists her child's inevitable growth, and of a young woman and man
who must struggle in the wilderness for the self-reliance that is the true
beginning of their adulthood.

As ever, and yet always
somehow in newly arresting fashion, Paul O. Zelinsky's work thrillingly shows
us the events of the story while guiding us beyond them to the truths that have
made it endure.

the field of daisies / and the apple trees dancing in the moonlight."
Fortunately, there's a happy ending, as the house is taken back to the country
where she belongs. A classic!

Boston has been described as "one of the merriest picture books ever"
(The New York Times). Ideal for reading aloud, this book deserves a place of
honor on every child's bookshelf. "Robert McCloskey's unusual and stunning
pictures [have] long been a delight for their fun as well as their spirit of
place". -The Horn Book
