Love Picture Books? Register to attend the ACPL Mock Caldecott

by Teresa Walls | Dec 07, 2017
Librarians, teachers, and other adults interested in picture books for children and young teens are invited to participate in the annual Allen County Public Library's Mock Caldecott Discussion and Election. Each year the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association, awards the Caldecott Medal. As stated in the ALSC's Caldecott Medal Terms & Criteria, the Medal is awarded "to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children published by an American publisher in the United States in English during the preceding year." The artist must either be a resident or citizen of the United States.

Don't miss out on the fun as we try to determine the books that might win the actual award. Books we will consider are from 2017, and 50 titles have been selected from the ones posted on the ACPL Mock Caldecott Pinterest Page. On February 3rd, we'll get together for a presentation about the award and art elements. We will then debate, discuss, critique, and decide on the ACPL Mock Caldecott winner for 2018. Advance registration is requested for this program; call Children's Services at 260.421.1220 or register online.

Here are the titles we’ll be discussing in-person on February 3rd.
