2010 Newbery and Caldecott Predictions Link

See link below:

It is SLJ's Elizabeth Bird's predictions for the Newbery and Caldecott medals. Are you blessed with money? Check this list out before you place your next order!


  1. You know I am voting for Jerry Pinkney. I think The Lion and the Mouse is amazing!


  2. My votes are for "Tsunami!," written by Kimiko Kajikaway and illustrated by Ed Young. If you haven't seen this gorgeous book, you _must_. It's a lovely Japanese folktale with beautiful collage-style art. I think there should be loads more folktales for kids like this one -- it's a great way of teaching kids about the world, and about human nature. Truly a timeless story, and a great book! (My youngest nieces and nephews are getting copies for Christmas!)
