And the winner is . . .

More by I.C. Springman, illustrated by Brian Lies, was chosen as the Caldecott Award winner in the mock Caldecott discussion held Saturday, January 26, at the Westerville Public Library.

Two honor books were chosen:

And then it’s spring by Julie Fogliano, illustrated by Erin E. Stead

(which was also the winner in our online voting!)


Sleep Like a Tiger  by Mary Logue, illustrated by Pamela Zagarenski

Children also voted in person at the library, with slightly different results.

Island: A Story of the Galapagos by Jason Chin tied with

Green by Laura Vaccaro Seeger.

Next down the list was More, which brings us full circle!

I can hardly wait until the actual awards are announced on Monday morning from the ALA Midwinter Conference in Seattle, beginning at 11 a.m. Eastern time.
