Mock Caldecott Program at Canterbury Lower School

by Mary R. Voors | May 24, 2017

Children’s Services librarians from the Main Library recently had an opportunity to explore many picture books with the 4th grade students at Canterbury School as we shared in a series of Mock Caldecott discussions throughout May 2017.
Canterbury students participate in discussion
Discussing elements of art in a wide variety of picture books, three classes of 4th graders culminated the discussions by participating in a Mock Caldecott vote for the "best" picture book of 2016. A winner and 5 Honor Books were chosen. The final results were:

  • Mock Caldecott Winner: The Dead Bird, illustrated by Christian Robinson and written by Margaret Wise Brown

It was a fun and informative program for all involved, and one which I hope will be offered again next year.
