Mary Volpe When will the 2010 winners be announced? I usually go on line in January and send our librarians the new Caldecott & Newberry lists (so they can plan orders for next year). I can see that the list from 2009 is still available but the 2010 list is being voted on.

Please let me know when to expect the list for 2010.

Thank you for your kind attention.
Mary Volpe

Lindsey I doubt Waiting for Winter by Sebastian Meschenmoser is eligible since it was first published in Germany, but I'm going to leave it on the list since it is by far my favorite picture book from last year. Anyone who hasn't read it should definitely check it out!
