Every year, children’s book illustrators hold their breath as the Caldecott committee members read, examine, and critique the best illustrated children’s books of the year to finally determine which one deserves the highly regarded award.
Below, you will see the 10 books we think are worth considering. These books, selected by Sonoma County Library staff, all fit the criteria of books to be considered for the Caldecott Medal. You can find copies of these books at your local branch for review.
Let us know who YOU think will win by voting for your favorites either online or at the library. Voting will be open from December 15 through January 7.
Sonoma County's winners will be announced in your local branch and online Jan. 8th!
Official winners announced Jan. 11th!
