Monday Trivia

It’s been awhile since my last trivia question (and it might be awhile longer until the next one), but I thought it would be fun to try to get trivia going again. Now that I’ll be back in the world of routines, I might as well add some daily rituals that are slightly more enjoyable than setting the alarm clock for 5 AM and braving Chicago traffic. For a good 8 or so years, posing trivially awesome questions was one of my favorite parts of the day. Then it stopped being part of my day. I’m not really sure why. Maybe I was amazed by the way it loved me all the time. Maybe I was afraid of the way I loved it.

Anyway, here’s to renewing the best and least important parts of the daily grind. I give you, today’s question. Only answers in the comments will count for official trivia points. Oh, and really quick, let me remind you of the trivia rules:

  • You can use any information that was in your brain before you read the question.
  • You can ask friends, family members, coworkers, or random passersby for help.
  • You cannot ask a friend, family member, coworker, or random passerby to consult said reference materials.
  • You cannot use any reference materials (i.e. books, newspapers, the Internet) to look up the answer.

I think there was a trivia code or something, too. I wonder if I can find that . . . eh, maybe later. Okay, today’s question, and it’s an easy one (or is it?):

To what kind of book is the Caldecott Medal awarded annually?

It's the Caldecott Medal, hooray
You've seen this thing before, but where? Come on, you know this. Unless you don't.

  1. Yes….i get to feel stupid again…hmmm I think I have seen that on childrens books…so there’s my brilliant guess 🙂

  2. Sounds like fun, Adam! I would have to Google for this answer, but since I try to not be a cheater, I won’t! My guess-children’s books. Clearly only a guess. 😉

  3. Oh, I know this. I learned it in a class once on Children’s literature. It’s awarded to Children’s books for excellence in illustrations. Right? I think…

  4. It’s for children’s books that have more words than pictures on the page. And doesn’t leaving our answers in the comments make it a little easy for those who answer late in the day? I’m just saying.
