Booklist Review

The 2000 edition of this annual publication begins with a discussion of the awards themselves and the criteria guiding the two selection committees. New to this year's edition is Rita J. Smith's enjoyable essay on the life and work of Randolph Caldecott. The longest and most useful section of the work remains a chronological, annotated bibliography of the Newbery Medal winners and Honor Books from 1922 to 2000 and a comparable listing of Caldecott Medal winners and Honor Books from 1938 to the present. The book concludes with a listing of the medium used in creating the art for each Caldecott award title. A handy and informative guide for children's reference collections. --Carolyn Phelan
