As we look back at our favorite children’s books of 2017, we’re excited to present our second installment of staff predictions for the Caldecott and Newbery Awards. Just as a refresher, the Newbery Medal is awarded to the most distinguished American children’s book published the previous year. And the Caldecott Medal is given to the most distinguished picture book of the previous year.

The awards are typically announced in January, but this year’s awards will be revealed later than usual on Monday, February 12. That gives you plenty of time to check out our predictions and make your own picks. Last year, we successfully guessed three of the honor books. We hope to beat that record this year!
