Congratulations go out to author/illustrator Chris Raschka for winning the 2012 Caldecott Medal for his wonderful book, A Ball for Daisy. That’s another huge feather in his cap, as well as his publisher’s (and mine), Schwartz & Wade, a division of Random House. I highly recommend A Ball for Daisy for anyone with children 3 and under. It has the same magic that sprinkled the pages of The Snowy Daywhen I was a child.

I’m so happy for Chris and honored to be part of the Schwartz & Wade family!
