The Mock Caldecott is an award to children’s books who have illustrations that help the reader understand the details of the story. The illustrations have to be creative and there are many types of ways the illustrator can make the pictures. They can use collages, colored pencils, watercolor, and more. One of my favorite books I read that was nominated for the Mock Caldecott is Alma. Alma is about a little girl and how she got her long name. Her name is Alma Sofia Esperanza José Pura Candela and each part of her name has a different story. Each of these names represents one of her relatives. It is easy to read and the illustrations were made with colored pencils and regular pencils. Alma was written and illustrated by Juana Martinez. You can check out this book in the Primary Learning Center. If you want to vote for this book you can go to
