Another Mock Caldecott has come and gone. As each year goes by our students get better and better at using the ALA criteria to read, examine and analyze the illustrations from the Mock Caldecott books. None of the student choices won the actual award but we are happy with both the actual winner and the spas winner.

2019 Caldecott Honor Books
I always feel a little sad after the Mock Caldecott is over and the Caldecott Awards have been announced. I really enjoy watching the students read and look at the books in a different way. Some take the whole process very seriously. Some become extremely passionate about a particular book. Some greatly dislike a book and we discuss why. Until next year’s Mock Caldecott I hope you enjoy all of these books and even the ones that didn’t win.
