What are the Caldecott Book Awards?

The Caldecott Medal is highly regarded in the children’s book world and is a prestigious American children’s book award that is presented annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association.

The award is given to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children published in the previous year.

It was first awarded in 1938 and is named in honor of nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph Caldecott.

Caldecott Children’s Book Awards Winners FAVORITES

Mo Willems appeared three times just in the past decade!

We absolutely adore Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!Knuffle Bunny and Knuffle Bunny Too.

It doesn’t matter how many times we read them, my boys just can’t seem to get enough of Mo Willems’ sense of humor and wonderful storytelling.

And don’t even get me started about his Elephant and Piggy series. We could just eat them all up!

Other stories that keep my boys in stitches include Interrupting ChickenClick, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type and Olivia.

My boys also love sweet stories that teach lessons and give them warm fuzzies, including BlackoutThe Lion & the MouseZen Shorts and The Stray Dog.

These books are just the ones that stand out for my boys. Every child is certainly different.

And, as they get older, I’m sure their tastes will change a bit.



  1. What a great list! I have read several of these with my boys but there are some we haven’t read yet. I will have to make a trip or two or three or four to the library 🙂 Krista @ A Handful of Everything

  2. Great list, it will be rather useful around my nephew’s birthday 🙂

    It’s interesting that now that my children are older, I don’t personally get to see these books anymore. Although they are ALLL OVER the blogosphere. Thanks for sharing your list in the Kid Lit Blog Hop.
