Congratulations to the winners! This year's crop of picture books was quite exceptional.
Welcome to the ACPL Mock Caldecott Blog!
If you love children's picture books, you're in the right place. We take great joy in highlighting and discussing our favorite newly published picture books.
We hope you will join us in our discussion! Feel free to leave your comments on the titles we post. You are welcome to suggest new titles, as well. Simply leave a comment, or send us an email.
We have two Mock Caldecott events planned!
Families were invited to visit the Main Library on Saturday & Sunday, December 10 & 11, 2011. They looked over our books, learned about the Caldecott Award, and voted for their favorite books. Click here to see which books were elected by the children and families.
Adults -- librarians, teachers, parents, other interested adults -- are invited to attend our traditional Mock Caldecott Election on January 14, 2012, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Indiana librarians will earn 4 LEUs for attending; all participants will receive a certificate of attendance. We'll learn about the Caldecott Award, talk about our favorites, and vote for our own Mock Caldecott Award winners. Click here to register to attend the adult program.
