Hey Kids. It's that time of year again. Monday, January 27th is the big day...the day they announce the winners of the 2014 Caldecott Award. Which means its time for me to blog about what books I think are in the running. I tell you, it was a tough field this year. I do not envy those people on the Caldecott committee one bit. But I do wonder if they'd consider letting a bear on the committee one of these years. Any who, as follows, in no particular order (okay...maybe it's in alphabetical order) are my picks.
Hank finds an egg by Rebecca Dudley — This wordless picture book tells the story of a friendly monkey helping an egg get back to its nest. The picture are photos of a handmade world. Photography and Arts and Crafts are two under represented art categories in Caldecott winners. Perhaps this is the year this changes?
