These questions are all about Caldecott winners (and runners up). Give yourself 1 point for each right answer for questions 1-9 and 100 points for question 10.
By the way, on all these trivia posts, a score of 105 or better is phenomenal. I’m very impressed by the folks who have scored so well on the previous two. I probably wouldn’t have scored that well myself…
1. The Provensen’s “Glorious Flight” is the story of an early airplane flight across…. what?
2. What did Drummer Hoff do again?
3. E.B. White got a Newbery, but his pal James Thurber’s book got a Caldecott. Though Thurber is an artist himself, his book “Many Moons” was illustrated by what spaceship-minded artist?
4: Caldecott loves snow like the Oscars loves drunks:
Snowy Day, The Big Snow, White Snow, Bright Snow, The Polar Express
So why didn’t Uri Shulevitz win with “Snow” in 1999. (He did get an Honor that year.)
5. Arnold Lobel is the Rock’em Sock’em Robot of Kidlit. Which of his incredible books did he win for?
6. There are several two-time winners, but who got the medal two years in a row?
7. “One Fine Day” isn’t so fine for our hero. What happens to him?
8. What’s the last name of Sylvester, of magic pebble fame?
9. Who’s this man?
10. “The Little House” may be the best book on the list and it although it was published 65 years ago it still packs a wallop today as it bemoans urban sprawl and rampant development, themes similar to what modern classic that failed to win the Caldecott, the Newbery or even the Emily Dickinson Prize for Best Sewage-themed Literature this year?
