Yesterday was voting day!
Books were revisited.
Directions were explained.
Ballots were distributed.
Votes were cast.
And the results are in....
We do not have time to keep voting until we achieve a 50% vote for one book, so I will stay with these results.
It is Chloe and the Lion for the Caldecott Medal with Honors to Extra Yarn and Nighttime Ninja. I Have a Dream and Green had a very honorable showing.
This weekend I will post more on the process as well as the students comments on each book. They are #priceless.

"If the book is meant to appeal to and engage children, are there children on the committee?"
