Mock Caldecott

Every year the American Library Association for Library Services to Children gives awards to outstanding examples of children’s literature.  One of the awards is the Caldecott medal, given to the most distinguished illustrations of a book written for children ages 0-14. In conjunction with that, every year the Provo City Library has its own “Mock Caldecott” event where public and school librarians look at some of the best picture books from the year and decide which we think should be the winners.   The Provo Library Mock Caldecott was Tuesday, Jan 5th and these were the books we chose as our winners.
