Mock Caldecott Winners (8:00 Class)

Here is the medal winner and honor books for our Mock Caldecott
(8:00 Class)

Medal Winner

Friday My Radio Flyer Flew
by Zachary Pullen

A sample of posted statements from some of my students prior to the event:

"Wow! I loved this book! I love the medium in which it was done and the way it brings texture to these incredible pages. The different views and perspectives were also interesting and made this book fun to read. I think this a great book overall and I would highly recommend it for the award!"

"So far, this is probably my top choice for illustrations. The pictures in this book are amazing and they are often the main emphasis on the page. The pictures seem larger than life, which goes along with the whole theme of the book. The details throughout the book are fantastic--from the cracks in the ground to the reflections in his father's glasses. I definitely recommend this one for the Caldecott."
