Checking In: Newbery/Caldecott 2017

29 Jun

Yep, you read that right.  Travis Jonker wrote up a great list of some Caldecott and Newbery suggestions for his blog 100 Scope Notes on  School Library Journal, granted we have no idea what the Committees will be talking about, but I’m in love with at least half of each of these lists.

I know it still way too early to be talking about the awards that won’t even be announced until next January, but I love taking a look at these lists because it keeps me up to date on titles being published this year that the industry is buzzing about.  It’s amazing that more often than not, something will slide past me before I get a chance to read it and these lists help me keep up with new books.

After last year’s huge surprise of Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Peña winning the Newbery (check out his Newbery speech), I’m excited to see what happens this year.  And now, if you’ll excuse me… I’ve got a lot of reading to do!
