Caldecott Contenders - Part 3

Posted about 19 days ago by Regina S

Toledo Lucas County Public Library’s 48th Annual Caldecott Read-In is going virtual this year. It will be held Saturday, January 23 from 10-11:30 AM. A live discussion and voting will choose our local winner and (we hope) predict the actual 2021 winner. The Caldecott Medal is awarded yearly to the artist of the most distinguished picture book from the previous year. In advance of our Read-In, here is Part Three of the long list of our favorite picture books published in 2020. All have a chance of being chosen as the 2021 Caldecott Medal winner.
