The cover of Locomotive.

Yesterday, in anticipation of the announcement, npr posted an article praising some of the picture books published in 2013: Eight Picture Books That Make Us Wish We Were Kids Again. Two of the books on npr's list were chosen as Honor Books by the Caldecott Medal Committee.

You don't have to be a kid to appreciate the wonderful illustrations from these books!
