Caldecott Challenge 2013 - the final 6!

So... this is it. These are the last 6 books of the Caldecott Challenge.

  1. Reminds me of the Caldecott artwork Exhibit they had at the Chicago Art Institute: It was pretty cool. They even had the books laying around so parents could sit down and read the stories to kids.
