Picture Book Reading Challenge 2018


The Picture Book Reading Challenge is hosted by Becky’s Book Reviews . The goal is to read a minimum of 6 picture books, choose one author to focus on and read their entire work or complete the list provided by Becky.

We are accepting the third option! Little 1 will be entering 1st grade in 2018 and it is expected of him to begin reading simple picture books and Little 2 will be entering Kinder in 2018 where it is expected of her to begin reading. So this challenge is absolutely perfect for us. Little 3 of course will be joining us as well.

Our goal is: to complete the entire Picture Book Reading Checklist.
