Mock Caldecott 2015

Recently, I asked ML if she wanted to have a group of friends come over for a Mock Caldecott. She said, “No, I just want it to be Calvin.”  The Caldecott Medal “is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children.”  Last year, I provided a collection of picture books for ML and Calvin to peruse and decide which book deserved the medal.

You can read about their 2014 Mock Caldecott… And the Winners Are.  Last year, they couldn’t agree on which book should win.  I’m curious to see if they will agree this year.  The winners are usually announced in January at the ALA Midwinter Conference.  This year, ML and Calvin have until February 1st to have their Second Annual Mock Caldecott.  Below are the books I’m bringing home for consideration by ML and Calvin for the most prestigious award for illustration in children’s literature.
