The Newbery and Caldecott Awards are almost upon us. What will win? It's the final prediction edition!

We discuss potential Caldecott winners on the podcast. I love all three of these books down to the cold cockles of my shriveled little heart. I seriously believe that each one of these books has a very good chance at some kind of Caldecott love in 2021.

This year's first round of predictions varies somewhat from those of the past because I am releasing the list in April rather than March. Turns out, pandemics are not good for forecasting. I've only just now gotten my head in order enough to try and offer a paltry take on what may or may not have a chance come January.

Great writing for kids, when you encounter it, reminds you that there is always a new way to look at this old, familiar world of ours. If you buy only one bee book for the rest of your life, make it this one.
