We held our first-ever Mock Caldecott program on Saturday, and had a wonderful time! Our runaway winner was The Farmer and the Clown, written and illustrated by Marla Frazee. We also had four honor books (listed in alphabetical order): Bad Bye, Good Bye, written by Deborah Underwood and illustrated by Jonathan Bean; The Iridescence of Birds, written by Patricia MacLachlan and illustrated by Hadley Hooper; The Noisy Paint Box, written by Barb Rosenstock and illustrated by Mary GrandPre; and The Right Word, written by Jen Bryant and illustrated by Melissa Sweet. The actual winner of the Caldecott Medal -- and any honor books -- will be announced on February 2 by the American Library Association. It will be exciting to see how close we come to the actual winners!
