Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge 2013
Thanks to Alyson Beecher from Kid Lit Frenzy for hosting this challenge! I know I have a major reading gap in my nonfiction picture book reading, so this seems like a great way to fix it.
My official goal will be to read a total of 52 nonfiction picture books and/or short chapter books. I'm going to stick with picture books and shorter chapter books so I can hopefully share most (or all) of them with my first graders. I've decided not to limit myself to only books published in 2013; instead, I'm just going to focus on finding great nonfiction regardless of the year.
As a part of the challenge, I'll also periodically be blogging about the books I'm reading and tweeting about them using #nfpb2013. It's always better when we have a reading community to support us and push us in these challenges. I am already looking forward to the conversations throughout the year!
