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.
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.
