Final Tentative Consideration List

List Updated

This is the final tentative list although titles might be added the day of the workshop.  The books in bold are the ones that were recently added to the list. If you have the time and books available to you, we 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 we 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.
