Mock Caldecott blog

Here's a great way to keep on top of all the new and excellent picture books coming out: the Mock Caldecott blog posted by the children's department of an Indiana library.

It's not quite the same as sitting on the floor of a bookstore surrounded by a stack of books, but it sure is easier (especially when you have small children who don't quite know the cost difference between a bookstore and a library).

Also, here's the list of Caldecott winners from 1938 to the present day.

(Thanks to Kjersten Anna Hayes, whose blog I pillaged for the mock-Caldecott link.)
