Final lists for Mock Awards available

Reposted from my blog:

The BCCLS Youth Services Committee has been very hard at work this year, reading and making lists of the books they deem most worthy of appearing in the finals for our Mock Caldecott, Newbery, and Printz Awards. The lists are final and available to all in several places.

First, you can see our flyer for the event (all are welcome!), which lists all of our favorites.

Second, you can visit BCCLSVisor, where the lists appear individually.

Caldecott contenders for 2009

I noticed that Richie Partington has posted his "Best of 2008" picks. His list includes several picture books, and because Richie is serving on the 2009 Caldecott, I would say that his picture book selections are ones to check out.

The BCCLS Mock Caldecott shortlist is here.

Archives of Mock Awards chats available

For those who were unable to attend our three online Mock Awards chats, don't worry! You can read the chat transcripts here: BCCLS 2009 Mock Awards Chats, November 2008
