I know so far with the six that I have done all had great stories.  There is 
so far that I have had to give up on because of it being mostly picture and 
not much text, so hoping someone else can pick it up, but so far these are 
actually really great stories.  I really liked Jumanji, though the movie is 
much better, smile, and I liked So You Want to be President, where the 
pictures have to be a hoot, smile.  Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears is 
a very popular book for most school districts, and it was an easy read, 
though I was worried with the pictures.

And Saint George and the Dragon is just a classic knights tale.

My library won't have the 2005 in for a few more months, smile, if someone 
has access to it, and I have three more to try.  to scan, so will let you 
all know how it goes, but it has been an interesting adventure.

Hi, Cindy. I think it is worthwhile to have them in the collection. Even if
they were given the awards for their illustrations and a blind child
wouldn't benefit from seeing those, if they read the book in a classroom
setting, it would be nice for them to have the book to read along with their
classmates. Take care.

The Caldecott Medal is awarded " the artist who had
created the most distinguished picture book of the
year."  In some cases, I discovered as I did some
research to be sure I was correct, a book is nominated
for both the Caldecott and the Newbery, and then the
committees decide inder whch category to place it.

Since it is the illustrations and not the story for
which the book wins the award, and illustrations can
only be described and not, as far as I know, actually
included in books in the bookshare collection, is it
really worthwhile to make a special effort to have
them in the collection?
