We held our fifth Annual Mock Caldecott Night on January 16, 2019. The participants in the event came together to learn more about what goes into making the decisions for the Caldecott Award each year. Twenty picturebooks were looked at by our Mock Caldecott committee before and during the event. There was lively discussion from both our in-person and online participants in the event and ultimately a winner and three honor books were selected.
