Four students also picked Red & Lulu to win the Caldecott. Their pictures are below. One of their favorite illustrations is in the beginning of the book, when we see Red & Lulu's tree throughout the seasons.
Activity name: A Tree Throughout the Seasons
Activity description: This activity works for lower as well as upper elementary students. Divide a paper into fourths and label it with each season. Lower elementary students draw their favorite tree in each season. Upper elementary students research a tree that grows in their area, as well as a bird native to their area. Then, they draw the tree with the bird in each season, making sure to only include the bird if it lives in that area during that season.
