2015 Caldecott Winners… According to ML and Calvin

BeekleNoisy Paint Box

Last year, ML and Calvin chose winners for their 2014 Mock Caldecott in record speed.  This year, they delved a little deeper.  However, once again they couldn’t reach a consensus.

Today, I gave them a stack of books for their 2015 Mock Caldecott.  I asked both of them to individually chose five favorites.  Then, I encouraged them to reach a consensus on five books to go to the next round.  They did it.  Friends since the age of two, I love watching them grow and mature together.  After whittling the list to five, they had a thoughtful and respectful discussion on which book should win.  They weren’t in agreement.  If I pushed it, they might have reached a consensus.  I decided to save it for next year.
