2021 Books from Caldecott Winners

Last time out we looked at new and upcoming books from past Newbery Medal and Honor winners. Today we’re doing the same for Caldecott.

What we have here are all the 2021 books I could find by past Caldecott Medal and honor winners. Lot of good looking books.

Did I miss one? Let me know in the comments. *NOTE* While there is the occasional board book or chapter/middle grade fiction book by a past Caldecott winner, I mostly stuck with picture books for this post.

  4. Hello!

    What a wonderful post:) I am curious what your method was for identifying this list and if you have a separate document with dates they will be released.

    Anyway to post just a checklist of titles for printing? Printing images makes for lots of pages!

      Hi Beatriz – I don’t have a list for you, unfortunately, but thanks for checking out the post!

    What is the one with the house illustration, no title or bylines? I am intrigued!

    Fred Gets Dressed by Peter Brown (Caldecott Honor for Creepy Carrots) is out on May 4, 2021.
    I’m not trying to sell the book but just giving some proof. :)
