33/24 books

  I've thought about reviewing picture books on my blog, but wasn't sure if anyone would be interested. I think it would be a great opportunity to diversify my reads and update my recommendations for younger readers. I plan on reading from the Monarch Awards, a list of recommendations for picture books sponsored by the Illinois School Library Association as well as books listed on the Caldecott award too. Thanks to Jennifer of An Abundance of Books for hosting this challenge!

The Details:

  • Timeline: January 1, 2012- December 31, 2012
  • Select your level:
  • Level 1 - Read 12 picture books
  • Level 2 - Read 16 picture books
  • Level 3 - Read 24 picture books
  • You don't have to select your books ahead of time, you can just add them as you go. If you do list your books in the beginning, you can always change them later on.
  • Crossovers with other challenges count.
  • Digital books count
  • Re-reads count as long as you read them in 2012 and you post a new review for the book.
  • You can join anytime
Goal for this Challenge: 24 picture books
