Well I completed the 2013 Shelf Challenge! I read all 124 books from the Ls in the everybody section of my media center. Completing the Shelf Challenge helped me to learn more about my collection. I discovered many new books I would otherwise not have read. My favorite authors from the Ls are Eric Litwin and Arnold Lobel. Eric Litwin's Pete the Cat books are favorite read alouds in the primary grades. Arnold Lobel's books invoke memories of storytimes from my childhood. When I pick up an Arnold Lobel book, I remember the smell of my elementary school library. Here is a link to the complete list of all of the books I read for this year's Shelf Challenge.
