2016 I Love Picture Books
For all of you of all ages who love picture books but find they don't qualify for your other challenges, or just want an excuse to read them. . .here's a challenge just for you!
Formerly hosted by Book Dragon's Lair. She's cutting back her challenge hosting for 2016 and passed the baton to me.
Challenge runs from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016. Sign up is now through December 1, 2016.
Read picture books.
Pick a number and go for it. Twelve too easy? Go for 20. Piece of cake? Go for 40.
Books you own and library check outs count. So do ebooks and re-reads.
Please post about the challenge and sign up with a direct link.
A blog is not necessary, just link to where you talk about the challenge or a dedicated public shelf at goodreads or LibraryThing.
Write a review - 2 sentences or an essay, whatever works for you, but there is a minimum of 2 sentences for your review. Not sure what to write? How about something like, "The characters were a delight but the artwork was dreary. It was disappointing." I'll post a link up post each month for those who want to share. Reviews are not necessary but would be nice so we know which ones to read ourselves. :)
My goal is 50 or more. That sounds high, but I teach in a toddler room so I read a LOT of picture books. The challenge will be tracking them and remembering to write reviews!
This reading challenge event is hosted by Bea's Book Nook
