Calling Caldecott back on the hunt tomorrow

callingcaldecott 550x1121 300x61 Calling Caldecott back on the hunt tomorrowLolly Robinson and Robin Smith will inaugurate this season of the Calling Caldecott blog tomorrow, and I know that the questions posed in the logo (What can win? What will win? What should win?) will provide plenty of discussion. At the HBAS colloquium later this month, I’m going to be talking to Erin Stead, Phil Stead, and Jon Klassen about what I think of as the lo-fi movement in picture books, and its preference for simplicity over sumptuousness and shorter texts over longer ones. A Ball for Daisy certainly fit that bill, but what’s gonna happen this year? Tune in tomorrow.

    biggest forms of fun for people of any age.

    Kids have fun with video games, and adults do, too. The actual XBox 360 is probably the favorite video
    games systems for individuals that love to have a lot of games
    available to them, along with who like to experiment with live with
    others all over the world. Many thanks for sharing your notions.
