CHPL Mock Caldecott 2010

Friday, January 8, 2010

Upstairs in the children's department we are excitedly waiting for the announcement of this year's Caldecott and Newbery Awards. There's been a lot of discussion about what books we think should win. For the Caldecott, staff favorites include Jerry Pinkey's The Lion and the Mouse, Peter Brown's The Curious Garden, and Moonshot by Brian Floca. Since all this debate is going on, we've decided to hold our own Mock Caldecott awards. We'll post our winners on Monday, January 11th. Then we'll see how our picks compare to the real Caldecott committee once they announce the real winner on January 18th!

Do you have a book that you are rooting for to win the Caldecott or the Newbery? Check out the criteria for these awards here and here and let us know what you think. We'd love to hear from you!
