Elizabeth Bird has collected a large list of Mock Caldecott, Newberry and Siberts. Come take a peek and see if your top pick children’s book made the mock list.
Each year I like to keep track of all the Mock Caldecotts, Mock Newberys, Mock Siberts, etc. that I can find. It’s not easy. At this point in time it’s not as if ALA or SLJ has created a centralized site where folks can plug in their Mock results for all the world to see (*bats eyelashes in general direction of ALA and SLJ*). In lieu of that, I’ve compiled as many Mocks as I can find. This year’s findings were a bit hampered by a snowstorm that caused many a Mock Newbery on the East Coast to be cancelled.
See the mock results at School Library Journal.
