If you have a school library or a kids' section in your church library, please do not assume that this year's winning Caldecott book is appropriate for your collection. Although it has won various awards, the content has language and content issues that make it unsuitable for church-related children's collections. The title of the Caldecott winning book is "This One Summer"  by Jillian Tamaki.

  • Update/clarification: "This One Summer" is NOT the gold medal winner but one of the "Honor" books. Usually they are picture books for primary students but the range can go up to age 14.  "This One Summer" is a graphic novel. The committee decided that it was appropriate for 12 - 14 year olds.
