Last week saw the end of the Children’s Classics Mystery Challenge at 5 Minutes for Books, and while I didn’t get to play along every month, I enjoyed the books I read. For the record, I completed three:
Next month will begin a new Children’s Classics challenge at 5 Minutes for Books, and I’m even more excited about this new one than I was the mystery challenge! This challenge, which will run July through December on the second Tuesday of each month, will feature award-winning children’s books. Any children’s book awarded a Newbery, Caldecott, or Coretta Scott King medal or honor is eligible for this challenge. I like to think that one day I will have read all of the award-winning children’s books out there, and indeed, even just since I’ve been blogging I’ve made a good bit of progress toward this goal. (Go here for Newbery posts and here for Caldecott posts.) I’m excited about this challenge because it will give me even more incentive to seek these books out!
Stay tuned for more award-winning book posts! 🙂
