To The Association for Library Services to Children (ALSC),
Care of The American Library Association (ALA),
I have nominated Bear and Wolf by Daniel Salmieri for the Caldecott Award this year. I am worried that my nomination will go unnoticed for a few reasons.
First, I did not send a copy of the book to committee members for review. I did however send a link to the Evergreen Library network here in Indiana. They have plenty to lend to any committee member who is in need of a loaner for a week or two.
Second, I’m also worried no one will take my efforts seriously. I submitted the nomination via the link on your website which I have learned is not typical of winning this award.
However, I hope my worries are baseless and all nominations are taken as seriously regardless of how or who nominates the book.
Thank you for your time,
