I have decided to begin a reading challenge with my two sons. I want to read through the Caldecott Medal winning books in chronological order (as much as possible). Gabriel, 23 months old, loves to read and is always excited to tell me what he sees in book illustrations. Philip, almost 3 months, is just beginning his reading journey, since mama sometimes reads to him while cuddling.
We're using the American Library Association's handy list, which shows the Caldecott Medal winners from 1938 to present. We certainly have our work cut out for us, but our library's summer reading program has just begun, and we are eager to read these new and exciting books.
Welcome to Mrs. Brecht's Bookshelf. Here you can read reviews of books that I read personally and books that I enjoy reading to my sons. Read more about our Caldecott journey here and about my decision to read banned/challenged books here. I'll also periodically post fun reading-related activities and ideas. Who knows, I may even start doing some book giveaways if I get enough readers!
