Week 1 complete

It's only a week in, but my internship so far is very fun. I went through the list of 300-odd Caldecott winners and took notes on all of them about the themes and styles. I made a big Excel spreadsheet with all the information on it. Now I'm making some LibGuide pages about the themes. Next I'm going to look for resources (videos, websites, books, etc.) about the major authors and doing LibGuides for them.

Just for fun, over the weekend, I visited the used bookstore attached to our local library and cleaned them out of Caldecott books. They were only 50 cents each, so it was a cheap shopping trip, and I can give them to my nephew when the internship is over. I don't have any kids myself, so it's kind of fun to go back and re-read some of these books I remember from when I was a kid!
