Mock Caldecott 2013

Sixteenth Vermont Mock Caldecott Award Day


Co-Sponsored by the Department of Libraries and VSLA


Friday, December 6, 2013

Vermont College of Fine Arts, Montpelier

9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Leda Schubert, picture book author and faculty member of the Vermont College of Fine Arts and Grace Greene, Youth Services Consultant for the Department of Libraries, will present “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly:  a lively history and discussion of the Caldecott Medal.”

In the afternoon participants will choose their favorite book of the year from a pre-selected list.


We have selected a list of 15 picture books from the hundreds that have been published this year. The list, which is here, includes mostly books that have been starred in the review media.  Our purpose is to get people to look at books critically and to become acquainted with a wide range of styles and techniques, not to second guess the Caldecott committee.  No books published at the very end of the year are on the list because they were not available to us soon enough.


Cost: $20 per person if you bring lunch; OR $31 includes lunch. Money is non refundable.


9:00      Coffee, tea, pastry from La Brioche and fruit; books available for perusal.

10:00    Program begins.
