Take a look at these beautiful books!
Below are the 37* most amazingly illustrated picture books written for kids in 2018 and they're the ones we're going to talk about at our annual Mock Caldecott Discussion and Election
coming up in January.
Saturday, January 12th, 9:00am-1:00pm
Globe Room at the Main Library
We'll learn a little about the actual award, given by the Association for Library Service to Children (a division of the American Library Association), we'll talk about elements of art, then we'll debate and discuss the finer points of these picture books.
Librarians, teachers, and other adults interested in picture books for children and young teens are invited to participate. Please register online
or by calling Children's Services at 260.421.1220.
Don't miss out on the fun as we try to determine the book that might win the actual award. Books we will consider are from 2018, and 37 titles have been selected from the ones posted on the ACPL Mock Caldecott Pinterest Page
*Did we miss one of your favorites? Give us a call and we'll see if we can add yours to the list for discussion. Remember, ALSC has detailed guidelines
about what books are eligible.
