Saturday's Mock Caldecott Discussion and Election at the Main Library was such a blast! Twenty One librarians, teachers, and book lovers learned, discussed, and debated. We started the morning with 38 picture books and narrowed our favorites down to just a handful. Our job was to choose one book as the most distinguished picture book for children published in 2018 and the winner was...
Drawn Together, written by Minh Le and illustrated by Dan Santat
We also had two honor books that stood out from the rest.
Julian is a Mermaid, written and illustrated by Jessica Love
I am a Cat written and illustrated by Galia Berstein
