It's that time of year again! The ALA Midwinter Meeting is just around the corner which can only mean one thing: It's Mock Book Award Season! Every year our library system holds a Mock Book Award Meeting where we discuss potential candidates for the Newbery, Caldecott, and Printz awards. We also give away a ton of books to our member districts so they love it too!
This year, we narrowed down our Caldecott contenders to just 30 titles that the elementary librarians should read and determine their favorites.
I also made a little form to rate some of the Caldecott criteria of each book.
You can find a blank one in my TeachersPayTeachers store for free here.
Our list with the 30 titles is available below:
The ALA Youth Media Awards are scheduled for 8:00 AM Monday. January 28th.
Hopefully, we'll see one of these win!
