Dan Santat's Caldecott Influence

Question: Which Caldecott Honor book influenced Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat? 

Press play for the answer! 

Do you remember the first time you read David Shannon's No, David!? It was an instant hit with my third graders when I student taught. I use it every year to introduce and discuss interjections and exclamatory sentences. 

Which Caldecott book influenced you? 


  1. This is a great story, thanks, Mr Schu for sharing.

  2. In my humble opinion, A Sick Day for Amos McGee is the perfect picture book. Great post, Mr. Schu.
