Mock Caldecott: Round 1

by Nancy M

As mentioned in a previous post, the Library’s youth services staff are participating in a Mock Caldecott election. We’ve been busy reading and have found a lot of great picture books that have been published in 2012; we can’t wait to see what the rest of the year will provide.

The Youth Services staff are split into two groups so we have two sets of winners.  Here are the results of our first round:

Team 1

First Place:

Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett; Illustrated by Jon Klassen

Second Place/Third Place Tie :

Green written and illustrated by Laura Vaccaro Seeger

Jazz Age Josephine by Jonah Winter; Illustrated by Marjorie Priceman

Team 2

First Place:

Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett; illustrated by Jon Klassen

Second Place:

Laundry Day written and illustrated by Maurie J. Manning

Third Place:

And Then It’s Spring by Julie Fogliano; Illustrated by Erin E. Stead

What do you think of our choices? Have you read any of these books yet? Let us know what you think and if we are missing something great!
