At the end of January, the Caldecott winners were announced. The Caldecott is an annual award given to the “most distinguished American picture book for children.” I’m always curious about the winners.
If you ever feel at a loss for what books to grab at the library, a Caldecott or Newbery award winner is usually a good place to start. This doesn’t always work (the books we like don’t always line up with the books the “experts” choose), but if you are looking for picture books to read with your kids, this year’s winner and honorees are good ones. Although Hello Lighthouse was the official winner for 2019, for kicks I decided to list this year’s picks with my favorites at the top.
If you have read them, I’d love to know which one was your favorite!
Honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of these books. If you are looking for quality picture books to grab next time you are at the library, please add these to your list!
And if you have a minute, I’d love to know your favorites (either from this list, or another picture book that you think should have been honored).
