I am with the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library in Evansville, Indiana.
We had our annual Mock Caldecott program Thursday (1/8/09) morning and I wanted to send you the results.
The last two years, our Mock Caldecott group choose the same titles the Caldecott Committee selected as well as several of the honor books.
While that is not our goal, it was good to know that we were on the right track.

Our picks...
1st place – Abe’s Honest Words (Rappaport/Nelson)
2nd place – Wabi Sabi (Reibstein/Young)
3rd place – On the Farm (Ellliott/Meade)
4th place – In a Blue Room (Averbeck/Tusa)
5th place – House in the Night (Swanson/Krommes)

I can’t wait for the real Caldecott results later this month.
