And the award goes to...

On Saturday, we concluded our voting for the Mock Caldecott Award.  Library users chose Daniel's Good Day by Micha Archer, however, it was not in the running for the actual Randolph Caldecott Award.

This morning it was announced that Kadir Nelson won the medal for Kwame Alexander's The Undefeated, which we are pleased was one of the titles in our mock awards.  Not only did Nelson take home the Caldecott Medal, he also won the illustrator's award for the Coretta Scott King award.  The book was also nominated for the John Newbery Award which is given to "the most outstanding contribution to children's literature.

The John Newbery Award was given to Jerry Craft's graphic novel New Kid.
