Since 1938, the American Library Association has awarded a Caldecott Medal to the year’s best American picture book for children. This year, Penn State’s Steven Herb chaired the committee that reviewed more than 1,200 books to select this year’s winner, a wordless picture book titled “A Ball for Daisy.” WPSU’s Patty Satalia picks up the story at one of Penn State’s child care centers.

So glad you’re highlighting the Caldecott Award and a true champion of children’s literature, Steven Herb. As a former student of Dr. Herb’s it’s a true pleasure to hear him share his passion and excitement. Thank you.
