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

This is the place to come for the month of May 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 April!

Janelle from Brimful Curiosities with her review of Good Night, Little Sea Otter by Janet Halfmann!
Janelle’s site has long been a favorite of mine, not only because of the picture book reviews but also because of the crafts and activities she does with her kiddos. So please don’t miss out on reading another fabulous blog and stop by Brimful Curiosities!

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. June 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 (May 31, 2011).

What’s up for grabs this month for participants?

This month I’ve decided to share an incredibly powerful book from my recent reviews, Ladder to the Moon by Maya Soetoro-Ng. If you haven’t yet read this book, you should definitely seek it out! Please feel free to take a look at my review if you missed it, and good luck to everyone!


Ladder to the Moon by Maya Soetoro-Ng

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, as of last month, 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!)**

    I commented on 8 posts (maybe more, but 8 for sure). I was having so much trouble posting recently that I am surprised that I was able to do that many. I do love seeing what other challenge bloggers are reading. My library queue is kept pretty full with books ideas from them.

  26. Books 66 to 69 have been reviewed as part of a post about reading to babies, toddlers and preschoolers over on my blog.

    I purposely entered my May links late because I didn’t want to win a book I already own!

    But my posts from May included books 130 to 188 of my 200.

    This blog is really interesting, but why it is on 15th place in google’s search results.
    It deserves to be in top 5. Many webmasters think that seo is dead in 2016, but it’s not true.

    There is sneaky method to reach google’s top 5 that not many people know.
    Simply search for: pandatsor’s tools
