Steve's 40th birthday has come and gone, and with it, the official end of my 40-4-Steve project. However, since I have only scrapped and shared 23 of the 40 adventures, you can expect 17 more blog posts in the near future. Well, sixteen more after this one.
The deRosiers are voracious readers (remember Library Roulette?) so I wanted to give Steve a reading challenge. I found the Newbery, Caldecott and Hugo award winners from the year he was born, 1976. He hadn't read any of them and loved the idea of reading them. He highly recommends all three books.
When I checked out these books for Steve, I also got the winners from 1972 (when I was born) and 2006 (when Trevor was born). Someday, I'd like us to read all of the Newbery winners, but that's easily a year-long project just by itself!
(Interesting that the library versions have different covers.)
