John Tiny Little Fly was published in 2010. http://blaine.org/sevenimpossiblethin...


message 2: by Jess (new)

Jess I believe Kady MacDonald Denton is Canadian, which would make The Queen of France ineligible - am I right?


message 3: by John (new)

John Jess--You're correct. The Queen of France is ineligible.


message 4: by John (new)

John 999 Tadpoles is ineligible for the Caldecott Medal.


message 5: by Ed (new)

Ed Even though I love Press Here, it is not eligible for the Caldecott (See http://www.hbook.com/2011/12/blogs/ca... from Horn Books). Great book and my kids love it, but unfortunately doesn't meet the Caldecott criteria.


message 6: by John (new)

John I think Press Here has a good chance of winning the Batchelder Award.


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Ohhh, I love this list. I've always had a soft spot for good children books, since I was a reading child :D
I'll probably add so many titles to my to-buy list from this.


message 8: by Jess (new)

Jess I removed Press Here since it's not eligible.


message 9: by Luann (new)

Luann I removed a bunch of novels from the list. Someone must not know what "Caldecott" means. Or they just add their favorite books to any and all lists? Books like Bossypants by Tina Fey, Pride and Prejudice, A Game of Thrones, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Book Thief???

Anyone can add books to this list.
