From time to time, do I indulge in a little Newbery and Caldecott conjecture? I do.

A Fuse #8 Production predictions

The Calling Caldecott blog

The Heavy Medal blog

Aaand the method I bring you today: checking out the Mock Newbery and Mock Caldecott lists on Goodreads.

I will share the top five Mock Caldecott and Mock Newbery here, and you can click on the lists to see more.
