Take advantage of the appeal and power of Caldecott award literature to enhance elementary level learning. In these three volumes the author demonstrates how to use award-winning books as springboards to grasping science, social studies, and language arts concepts-and to expand student awareness and appreciation of illustration techniques.

The books include an array of individual and collaborative projects, many of which foster collaborations between library media specialists and classroom teachers.
