Newbery and Caldecott

I’ve unofficially been working on reading all of the Newbery and Caldecott winners, but a couple of days ago I stumbled upon some ‘official’ challenges, so I decided to join up. It’s always fun to work on goals with other bloggers and lately I’ve been loving reading what other bloggers think of the books I’m reading.



The Caldecott Challenge is being sponsored by Laura at LibLaura5.  You can follow the discussions on twitter by using the hashtag #nerdcott and also here on Goodreads.

You can follow my progress by clicking on the tabs below my blog header. Today I picked up these books at the library to read towards these challenges:





I just love being in the library, especially early in the morning when it’s actually still quiet!
