What do beloved children’s books The Polar Express, Where the Wild Things Are, Madeline and The Invention of Hugo Cabret have in common? They have all been honored by the Caldecott Committee, which annually selects the winner of the prestigious Caldecott Medal. The Caldecott Award honors the nation’s best children’s picture books. Believe it or not, only 15 judges help select the Caldecott prize winner and one of them is from Kansas City. Her name is April Roy and she can normally be found in the children’s section of the Plaza branch of the Kansas City Library. Randy Mason was recently able to pull her away to join us for a conversation on The Local Show.
