This year's Mock Caldecott winner is...
And we gave honors to all of our runners up:
On a Beam of Light: A Story of Albert Einstein by Jennifer Berne, illustrated by Vladimir Radunsky (Chronicle Books)
When Stravinsky Met Nijinsky: Two Artists, Their Ballet, and One Extraordinary Riot by Lauren Stringer (Harcourt Children's Books)
I'll be attending the Midwinter Meeting, so I'll be in the audience as the actual 2014 awards are announced, but I've arranged for my staff to come in early to watch the live webinar together in our computer lab. I know that now that we've had some conversations and looked closely at this year's picture books, my staff will be more invested in the results and excited to watch the awards announcements!
