Kids Pick Their Favorite

This past Tuesday, at our Mock Caldecott Election, students were invited to view several picture books published in the last year, and pick a favorite. These are their choices:

Doggone Dogs by Karen Beaumont, illustrated by David Catrow

And Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by Mem Fox, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury

Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes is not actually eligible for the Caldecott Award as neither author nor illustrator are American, but our students liked their work.

For a list of past winners of this award, check out this website.

On January 26th, the American Library Association will announce the winner of the 2009 Caldecott Award.
