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.
Winner: Julián is a Mermaid by Jessica Love
Honor Books: Drawn Together by Minh Le illustrated by Dan Santat
Dude! by Aaron Reynolds illustrated by Dan Santat
Hello Lighthouse by Sophie Blackhall
