David McLimans Illustrates 2013 Poster
Wisconsin’s own David McLimans, who has created several books for children, including the Caldecott Honor winning Gone Wild: An Endangered Animal Alphabet, has generously donated the illustration for the 2013 Sheboygan Children’s Book Festival poster and will appear at the festival.
2013 Festival Theme: The Ways of Looking
This year’s theme challenges us to notice the details and consider what our observations can offer in how we view people, places, art, ideas, and everyday objects.
Celebrating 75 Years of the Caldecott Medal
The prestigious Caldecott Medal turns 75 this year and we are joining the nation-wide celebration! The Caldecott Medal and Honor awards are presented annually to the most distinguished picture books for children. We are thrilled to have several Caldecott award-winners appearing this year who will talk about their books and art and share their very own "ways of looking."
