Hooray for the Perkins star! Is it possible that she could win the Newbery and Caldecott with back to back books? I notice Kirkus has also starred PICTURES FROM OUR VACATION.

Hooray, too, for the Clarke star! ONE WHOLE AND PERFECT DAY is one of the most delightfully enchanting books of the spring season.
