Reading great books with great kids! Our Caldecott Club is working on narrowing down this formidable list of excellent picture books!  Our 3rd grade students will be working on arranging them by genre: Poetry, historical fiction, narrative nonfiction, realistic fiction, biography, folk tale.  
Here is the criteria the students have proposed for voting:
1. Kids like the story, 2. It is a good story, 3. The illustrations help to tell the story.
