Caldecott in question

It’s true that I often picked up the Caldecott Medal books first when looking for something to read to the kids–it’s pretty reliable. And I can’t see how it would be anything but more reliable if they were to follow this fellows thinking that it should be expanded to allow international entries.

…lately the Caldecott Medal has begun to show its age for reasons that cannot be written off to the vagaries of time or taste. Today, in fact, the world’s very first prize for children’s book illustration is in urgent need of a makeover: The outdated rule that candidates must be American needs to go.
