Caldecott 2018 Ballot

A picture of my favorite Caldecott winner to read in storytime...can you guess it?

A picture of my favorite Caldecott winner to read in storytime…can you guess it?

I’m standing for election on the Caldecott 2018 ballot. First of all, I’d like to say that I’m incredibly humbled and honored by this and still can’t believe that it’s happening.

But it IS happening, starting today. If you’re a member of ALSC (Association for Library Services to Children), you can vote as soon as your ballot is emailed to you. Here’s some links for information on the ALA Election process or the 2016 ALSC Elections.

So, just a few quick things about me and my qualifications:

Above all, I am committed to children’s librarianship and love to give back to the community. Being on the Caldecott Committee would, in my opinion, be the ultimate lasting contribution to the field. It would give me an opportunity to be a part of a decision that would change the lives of libraries, children, and illustrators permanently.

Thank you very much for reading this post.
