Caldecott Medal Book Club
Kindergarten & 1st Grade only
Kindergarten and first grade students may join our Caldecott Medal Book Club. Each time you read (or are read to) 20 Caldecott Medal books (gold or silver), return the special Caldecott Medal Book Club reading log to the media center. A star will be added to our Caldecott Medal Book Club display for each 20 books you read and you will be recognized during your next media center class. Who will be the Caldecott champs this year? Kindergarten or 1st grade?

Why do Wilson Creek Wildcats love these books so much? The Caldecott Award is given annually to the illustrator of the most distinguished American picture book for children. This award has been given since 1938 and is presented by the American Library Association (ALA).
The award is named in honor of the nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph J. Caldecott.
First graders and kindergarten students are encouraged to participate in the Caldecott Medal Book Club to become introduced to a variety of types of illustrations. This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy family reading time by participating in this reading incentive program. When you have a few minutes, take some time to sit down with your child and read a Caldecott book. Your child will benefit immensely and you’ll both have a great time. Enjoy!
Parents are welcome to visit the media center and check out up to 10 library books, so come on in and take advantage of Wilson Creek's wonderful collection of Caldecott Medal books while helping your child earn membership in the Caldecott Medal Book Club!
