Did you know that the Caldecott & Newbery Book awards were announced this morning?

So exciting! I’m super thrilled for Jon Klasson…I’m sure it feels absolutely SURREAL to win a Caldecott AND a Caldecott Honor book in the same year.

I’d rush off and get these from the library if I were you before they are stolen off the shelves:) Do you have a favorite of these? I’d love to hear!

    My preschool age son loves This is Not My Hat by John Klassen. My daughter loves Extra Yarn. It’s always fun to see which books the committee chooses as winners!

    This is Not My Hat is a great choice for the Caldecott, it’s perfectly illustrated.

    This is one of those things that I
    have been looking at doing for a while, but this is definitely a good reason to
    get on and do it!
