John Schu of Watch. Connect. Read. recently announced The Newbery Medal Challenge - 1922 to Present, that got me and a few other folks on twitter thinking about a Caldecott Medal Challenge.
Recently Travis Jonker of 100 Scope Notes attempted to read all of the Medal Books in one day (73 books)
...but what about all the Honor Books? That's over 300 picture books.
My plan starting this January is to read through all of the Caledecott Medal Winners and Honor Books by year starting with 1938 and working my way to the present blogging about my progress here, tweeting about it using the hashtag #nerdcott, and tracking the books on goodreads.
Awesome librarian and pal in real life Anna of A to Z Library has agreed to co-host this challenge with me. Thanks, Anna!
Like The Newbery Medal Challenge - 1922 to Present THIS IS A STRESS FREE CHALLENGE. It is intended to be fun! You are invited to participate in this challenge at your own pace and at your own level of "strictness" to the list of books. Some of those older honor books may be difficult to get your hands on. You may choose not to re-read titles. You may make this challenge about what works for you!

#nerdbery & #nerdcott - two great reading challenges that go great together.
Just remember if you choose one or both... the theme is STRESS FREE!
