We have a winner

Our new blog about all things Caldecott Medal, debuting this fall, will be called Calling Caldecott, a name first suggested to us by Anamaria of Books Together. It was the first suggestion! So, Anamaria, send your mailing address to kbircher at hbook dot com and we'll get you your copy of A Family of Readers.

Any early Medal contenders out there?

My favorites thus far in 2011, though I'm not prepared to use the "c" word yet in only May:

The aforementioned Blackout
Phil Stead's Jonathan and the Big Blue Boat
Tricia Tusa's Follow Me
Tweak Tweak, as ill. by Sergio Ruzzier
Hopper and Wilson by Maria van Lieshout

...and more... (There have been some good picture biographies of late)
