What's so great about Caldecott and Newbery?
"Faced with rows and rows of children's books at the library or bookstore, many parents are grateful for the "seal of approval," a gold sticker that indicates a book has won an award."
"But does that mean the book is really right for your child? Not necessarily. A look inside the awards may help you the next time you're hunting for a great book for your child." (from The Freelance Star)
