Caldecott Books with Second Grade #resvt #cesuvt

Second graders at RES are in the middle of a unit on picture books that have won the Caldecott medal for best illustration. One of the requirements for a Caldecott book is that the illustrations must add meaning to the text. The scholars have been sharing Caldecott books, first with the text alone and then with both the text and illustrations.They have been asking the question, "What do the illustrations add to the text?" and discussing their observations with partners.


Sharing with partners about what the illustrations add to the text

Here are some of the Caldecott medal-winning books they have shared. Ask yourself: What do the illustrations add to the text?


Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak






Grandfather's Journey by Allen Say
