Here's Our Winner!

by Dawn S | Jan 14, 2019
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...
