Hi Everyone! It’s Becky. This week I will be sharing with you two picture books that I think should be considered for the Caldecott Award. If you are unfamiliar with the award it is given by the American Library Association to the illustrator that gave the most distinguished contribution to children’s literature. Here are my selections:
Summary: A young boy spends the afternoon with his grandfather. His grandfather does not speak English and the boy does not speak Vietnamese, but they learn to communicate through their love of art.
Summary: Julian spends every Saturday morning swimming with his grandmother. Every week is the same until he encounters beautiful women in shimmery dresses on their way to the Mermaid Parade. Julian decides he must join them, and he works to make his own costume.
