March’s Read-to-Me Picture Book Challenge Link-Up

This is the place to come for the month of March to link-up any and all of your picture book reviews you’ve posted during the month!

First of all…Congratulations go to the winner from March!

Myra at Gathering Books with her review of David Wiesner’s Free Fall!
If you haven’t stopped by Myra’s site yet, you certainly are missing out on some fantastic picture book recommendations and I’d highly recommend making a visit!

The Details:

  • Make sure that before you link-up your reviews you’ve signed up for the challenge as outlined on the challenge page. (If you have not, I reserve the right to delete your entry.)
  • Anyone, even non-bloggers can participate. Open worldwide.
  • Non-bloggers can link to their reviews posted on Goodreads, Shelfari, LibraryThing, or Amazon. (If you need help with this please feel free to email me at the1stdaughter {at} gmail {dot} com.)
  • Link as many reviews as you’d like throughout the month. Each link to *review(s)* will enter you into the monthly prize drawing. (Only reviews will count toward the drawing, not just listings of what you are reading. Sorry! We want to hear what you though about the books. <3)
  • Monthly prize drawing is open to all participants, worldwide, and one winner will be chosen at random and will be posted on the 2nd day of the month following (ie. April 2nd for this month). So please make sure to link any reviews you’d like counted for the month before the last day of the month (March 31, 2011).

What’s up for grabs this month for participants?

This month I have the opportunity of sharing one of the titles from the Cybils Fiction Picture Book Finalists for our Picture Book giveaway this month! I was able to serve as a Judge for the Cybils Awards this year and felt incredibly honored to be a part of this superb event that promotes reading the very best in children’s literature today. Take a look at this month’s prize offering…

This month I will be selecting one winner to receive this fantastic book!

That’s it! Get linking and make sure to take a look around at the other reviews posted for more great ideas on what picture books to pick up next. I know I’m going to be stopping by just to add to our TBR pile!

**PS…As an added incentive, from here on out for every 5 comments you make on your fellow participant’s picture book reviews you will get an additional entry into the monthly drawing. Before the last day of the month make sure to stop by leaving a comment about how many comments you have left so that I can add those to the amount you’ve entered in reviews! (And of course, make sure you are signed up to participate in the challenge!)**

    We’ve read lots of fun books this month- discovered some new authors too! Just got my reviews linked up.

  2. Susan Murray says:

    We just started this challenge this month – I’ve never kept track of how many books we read as a family before. I cannot believe we’ve read 100 books this month (and I don’t count re-reads!). What a fun challenge!

  3. We end our Wordless Picture Book special with Shaun Tan’s Masterpiece, “The Arrival.” While technically not a picture book but more of a graphic novel, we insert this here nonetheless. Marks our 68th book for the Picture Book Challenge.

  4. Another precious book review done by a 4year old child for our Quill Junior. Mortimer’s First Garden. Check it out.

  5. Katie says:

    Sorry for the additional comments – I’m trying to sort out my books!

    My posts from April included books 92-129 of my 200.
