Below are the books, I am hoping ML and her friend, Calvin will look at this weekend for their Mock Caldecott Award. I’m still waiting on a few to come from other library branches. So they may not have a chance to win.
One really cool aspect of our multimedia world is many illustrators have videos showing them creating their work. This post includes links to these. And a quick note if I know the mediums used to create the illustrations.

Looking forward to seeing if one of the Stead books are chosen or a book with Mr. in it’s title. I feel more confident in predicting which books I think the Caldecott committee will pick for the award and honors; than I do guessing what ML and Calvin will choose. It’s going to be fun hearing two first-graders opinion.
