Caldecott Challenge 2011-2012

I can hardly believe I am 6 books away from the end of my Caldecott Challenge, AKA #nerdcott, a 2012 New Year's Challenge to read all 316 Caldecott Award and Honor books.

Tomorrow evening I will be attending the 75th Annual Newbery & Caldecott Award Banquet.
I can not think of a more perfect way to celebrate!
