Our fourth, and final, short list of the year will be published during December. In the meantime, we will continue to discuss a wide variety of picture books on our blog, and comments are encouraged on all titles listed. Titles included on the Short Lists are those we believe to be particularly strong, and will be brought to the table for further discussion at our Mock Caldecott Election to be held on Saturday, January 10, 2009.

If you'd like to suggest a book for our final list, just send and email to Genie or Kris, or leave a comment on any of the postings.

How to Heal a Broken Wing is one of my favorite books of the year. However, Bob Graham is Australian and still lives there, making him ineligible for the Caldecott, correct?

Oh, bummer! Thanks for pointing that out, Anonymous. I'll remove How to Heal a Broken Wing from the list, since it's not eligible for the Caldecott, but I do agree with you that it is a GREAT book.
