 Caldecott Medal
The Caldecott Medal is awarded each year to the illustrator of the most distinguished American picture book for children by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association. The award is named in honor of the nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph J. Caldecott, and was originally created as sort of the flip side of the Newbery Medal. While the Newbery is awarded to the "most distinguished American children's book" of the previous year, the Caldecott is awarded specifically to illustrators.
