Read any wonderfully illustrated children’s books recently?

The 2019 Caldecott Award Selection Committee invites ALSC members to submit book titles for consideration. The Randolph Caldecott Medal is awarded annually to the illustrator(s) of the most distinguished American picture book for children published in the United States in English during the preceding year. For the complete terms and criteria, refer to the ALSC website.

Do note that only books from the 2018 publishing year are under consideration for the award. Also, please note that this suggestion form is for personal members of ALSC to use to nominate titles, and should not be used by publishers, authors, illustrators, or editors to suggest their own titles.

Go to to post your suggestion. You will need to have your ALA login & password handy to access the suggestion forms.

Deadline for your suggestions: December 15, 2018.
