I thought you might be interested to learn about outstanding picture books of 2013 from around the world. The following email was just posted on ALA's Association for Library Services to Children.

On Thursday, January 16, 2014 the Butler Children's Literature Center held our first ever Mock CaldeNott program (applying the Caldecott terms and criteria to outstanding picture books of 2013 from around the world, ineligible due to their international provenance). We looked at a butler's dozen of wonderful books (that's 13) and chose one winner and 1 honor book.

The winner: Jane, the Fox & Me by Fanny Britt, illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault (Groundwood Books)

The honor book: My Father's Arms Are a Boat by Stein Erik Lunde, illustrated by Øyvind Torseter (Enchanted Lion Books)

Other distinguished titles discussed:

The Line by Paula Bossio (Kids Can Press)
The Bear's Song by Benjamin Chaud (Chronicle Books)
A Little Book of Sloth by Lucy Cooke (Margaret K. McElderry Books)
Herman and Rosie by Gus Gordon (Roaring Brook Press)
Opposites by Xavier Deneux (Chronicle Books)
Here I Am by Patti Kim, illustrated by Sonya Sanchez (Capstone)
The Big Wet Balloon by Liniers (Toon Books)
The Tiny King by Taro Miura (Candlewick Press)
Maps by Aleksandra Mizielinska and Daniel Mizielinski (Big Picture Press)
The Voyage by Veronica Salinas, illustrated by Camilla Engman (Groundwood Books)
Nasreddine by Odile Weulersse, illustrated by Rbecca Dautremer (Eerdmans Books for Young Readers)

It was a lot of fun. We recommend it highly.
