One of the natural things to do at the end of a year is reminisce about favorite experiences of the past 12 months: …movies…food…family get-togethers…funny things our children have said…and of course, books! We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite picture books published in the past 12 months. All of these titles meet the criteria for the Caldecott Medal, an award given every year to the “most distinguished” children’s picture book published in the United States.
Which book do you think should win? Stop by Children’s Services between now and January 18, check out some of the titles for yourself, and cast your vote! Each vote will be entered into a drawing to win a free picture book. Also, please leave your comments about each title on our ACPL Mock Caldecott Pinterest Board.
In addition, on January 24th, we will be holding our annual Mock Election Programs. Mock Caldecott will be from 9am to 1pm, Mock Newbery from 2:00-5:30pm. Adults who are interested in children’s literature are welcome to attend either or both of these FREE events.
