So imaginative and beautiful. I bought a copy for my niece’s 1st birthday in December.

Always my favorite day in January.

So jealous that you got to meet Klassen!

I learned about Weisgard last night. So yes, Jon Klassen is an instant legend. When I met him (squeal) I tried not to fangirl all over him, but I’m not sure how well I did. I’m still exhausted from yesterday!

SO thrilled that they recognized so many! And then oh…did you cry at all?! I totally did.

Oh and FYI, it has happened before where an illustrator won both the medal and an honor; but I’m pretty sure only once. Leonard Weisgard won in 1947 — the medal for The Little Island and an honor for Rain Drop Splash. So thrilled for Jon Klassen! He can already be linked in awesomeness with someone as classic as Weisgard.

Tue, 29 Jan 2013 15:12:39 +0000 http://www.designmom.com/?p=30149#comment-434401 I was watching (online) right there with you! I love it! And was so amused when they announced that there would be 5 Caldecott honor books this year and the whole crowd sent up a chorus of shock and excitement — too funny!

I’d really love to see Graeme Base win one of these years though!
