A highlight of each December issue is SLJ‘s Best Books, a select list chosen by our review staff from the titles published that year. But there’s another issue to decide: the illustrator for the December cover. Other than having to work within a basic theme of stars, the artist is pretty much given free rein as to the interpretation. Betsy Lewin got the assignment in 2001.

Mordicai Gerstein, a Caldecott award winner for The Man Who Walked Between the Towers (pictured below) did the cover illustration in 2003
