Mock Lists – The Ultimate Round-Up

MockTurtle 250x300 Mock Lists   The Ultimate Round UpPhew!

Okay, I did it.  I searched and strived and sought out every possible available Mock Newbery, Caldecott, Printz, you name it.  And those that took the time to post their results online or on my blog or on a listserv, those are the folks I have to present to you today.  The ALA Youth Media Awards are Monday so we haven’t a minute to spare.  And yes, I know that a fair number of Mock committees are meeting this Saturday.  Send me your results too, folks!  The more the merrier.  I just figured I’d release this while my tallying by title was done. Obviously this isn’t everyone out there, but it’s everyone I was able to find.  Who did I miss?

Oddly the Mock Printzs of the world are very reluctant to post their results online.  Not sure how to account for it, but if you’d like a round-up of their shortlists, you can’t do better than to check out the good work Whitney put into ‘em here.  Special thanks as well to Rebecca Zarazann Dunn for her kicky Mock Newbery Infographic.

And don’t forget!  If you are planning on watching the live feed of the Newbery/Caldecott announcements during the ALA Youth Media Awards presentation, come half an hour earlier and check out my pre-game show where I will join cohort Lori Ess in discussing the potential winners.  Afterwards we will note which Mock Newberys, Mock Caldecotts, Mock Printzs, etc. got it right nationwide.  For more information: http://blogs.slj.com/afuse8production/2014/01/20/introducing-the-first-ever-absolutely-fantastic-slj-pre-game-and-post-game-show/

    Sorry to post our results so late, but we’ve just finished our voting (it took almost all day!)…and after a long, many-ballotted, and very passionate battle, my 3rd graders (at Kensico School, Valhalla, NY) chose Bluebird as their Caldecott medal winner. The five honors are: Hank Finds an Egg, Journey, Matchbox Diary, Mr Tiger Goes Wild, and Mr Wuffles.
    I’ll be sharing the other mock results with the kids on Monday, and I am going to try to get the live feed working in the classroom too! Can’t wait to find out the “real” results!

The hands down favorite for Newbery was Jinx by Sage Blackwood with Fortunately the Milk and The Real Boy as honors! Our Caldecott results were The Matchbox Diary as the winner, with honors to Bluebird, Fish and Snail, Journey,and Mr. Tiger Goes Wild! We can’t wait to see the live broadcast!
