Wyverncott 2017

Wyverncott 2017

We have a January event at the library called the “Wyverncott” which is our version of the Caldecott award (the Wyvern is our mascot).  I pick four or five picture books from the previous year and my 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students will read them through the month of January and then vote on their favorite.  The winning illustrator will receive hand drawn Wyverncott medals (created by the 2nd grade) and hand written notes of congratulations from the 3rd grade.  It has become a great tradition that kids look forward too!

Previous winners have been:

Christian Robinson for his work in Gaston

and Alina Chau for her work in Double Happiness

Here are the nominees for the 2017 Wyverncott!

I love all of these books so much, it is hard for me to pick a favorite, luckily I don’t have to vote!  I will let you know how took home the prize!
