Notes on November 2021
In November . . .
. . . I proposed a Caldecott Medal name change
The Pinkney Medal has a nice ring to it.
. . . it’s Mock Caldecott time.
I share how we run the Mock Caldecott at my K-3rd grade school, and the books we will be reading.
. . . we looked at the Best Illustrated Children’s Books of the year.
The New York Times released their annual list, and I reviewed my predictions.
