The first two books pictured below are the two books that I'd like to see win. If the judges choose either one of these, I will be a happy camper.
Extra Yarn Written by Mac Barnett and Illustrated by Jon Klasssen
I love this book! Even if is doesn't win...the illustrations are top-notch in my book.
This year, I had a difficult time choosing a runner up. But I do like the simplicity of This Is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen. It's kinda cute.
This year I'd like to see something with richer, thicker and more detailed illustrations win the Caldecott....a book so heavy with ink that it weighs 3 pounds....a book so detailed that each time I look at it I see something I hadn't noticed before! The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is just that kind of book!
We'll just have to wait and see.
Until another day,
Happy Reading Everyone!
