Mock Caldecott

On Saturday, January 21, I am leading a Mock Caldecott workhop and mock election. I have a big list of books to take with me. Some of these I really don’t think have a chance at the medal, but I have gathered books that have gotten good reviews, books that I personally have enjoyed and think are the best of the year, and books that other Mock Elections have noticed. Here’s my rather long list — some are hopefully in a box that is being shipped as I write, and I will have them tomorrow or Friday. Here it is!
