First Tentative Consideration List

Titles will be added to this list periodically until the workshop.  If you have the time and books available to you, I recommend that you look at as many of the titles as you can before attending the workshop.  There are so many books and relatively so little time before the first ballot.  If I have omitted a title that you feel should be considered, please contact us.  Submissions should include the following information:  title, author, illustrator, publisher, and whether or not you could provide the book for the workshop.
