This week in grades K-5, we are looking at our Mock Caldecott books! As we have been studying art in picture books this year, this is a great way for the students to look the illustrations up close and to think critically about each one: What artistic style is used? How well do the pictures help tell the story? Do the illustrations match the story being told? Do the pictures present the story to children in an excellent way?
The Caldecott Award winner and honor books will be announced on February 2nd. We’ll see if any of these books make the cut!
