I really enjoyed this book. I am a book lover and found the information on the various authors (all of which I knew) very interesting. I took a course in college that was called "Children's Literature" or (kiddie lit), so I am familiar with the Caldecott and with almost all of these authors' work. I do believe that a child may not get the most out of this, unless he or she is already interested in illustrations etc. The books that are discussed would be familiar to most children, but I as an avid book person, think this was very well done and would recommend it.

The Caldecott Prize has been awarded every year since 1937 to the artist deemed to have produced the most distinguished American picture book for children. The author, Leonard Marcus had the good idea of interviewing one winner from each of the seven decades of the prize's existence. Marcus focused on the process of producing an award winning book. Although this book is geared towards young adults, I was once again reminded of the hard work and dedication that goes into producing beautiful works of art. The early sketches and book layouts provided to Marcus from the artist's personal collections are beautiful and give readers new insights into the production of books which have moved into the realm of the iconic. The book is well written, lovingly produced and reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

Design Maven's review could not be more inaccurate than it is. A CALDECOTT CELEBRATION includes information about Mordicai Gerstein's 2004 Caldecott, so it can hardly be considered a book about the past. Additionally, Leonard Marcus includes information about David Wiesner, Chris Van Allsburg, and Maruice Sendack. Wiesner has won the Caldecott most recently for FLOTSAM in 2007. Though the Marcus book details Wiesner's work for TUESDAY, rather than FLOTSAM, A CALDECOTT CELEBRATION will never be dated. Sendack, Wiesner and Van Allsburg produce timeless books. Mr. Marcus is THE authority on children's literature, including picture books. After enjoying A CALDECOTT CELEBRATION, look for his other distinguished books. You cannot go wrong with a book by Leonard S. Marcus. B. McDonald
