Mock Monday but on a Tuesday: Caldecott

Hey everyone,

I got sidetracked yesterday, so here are this month’s Caldecott picks.


Title: Shy Willow

Author: Cat Min


Young bunny, Willow, lives in an abandoned mailbox. When a young boy posts a letter to the moon in her mailbox, Willow is determined to deliver the letter and help the boy grant his mother’s birthday wish.

Caldecott Considerations:

The colorful jacket cover is a perfect pairing with the muted cover and end papers. As Willow becomes more open to the world, the illustrations of the outside world begin to color the pages. The colors used to show the passage of time from day to night is gorgeous.
