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

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

Katie from A Class of her own with her “Letter V Reviews” in which she shares the feelings of her adorable kiddo “Cricket”. Congratulations!

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 thought 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. July 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 (June 30, 2011).

What’s up for grabs this month for participants?

Amanda & Her Alligator and Should I Share My Ice Cream by Mo Willems

It’s no secret, the There’s A Book household happens to be huge Mo Willems fans. HUGE! So, with a new release coming out in our favorite series, Elephant & Piggie, plus the recent release of his new book Amanda & Her Alligator we couldn’t resist sharing the love of this fantastic author/illustrator.

This month I will be selecting one winner to receive one copy of each 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, 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 actually wrote this review of two picture books last month, but with two graduations and a vacation, I forgot to link it! Here it is:

    My review of two picture books (one an ARC) was actually posted in May, but between the end of the semester at my university library, two graduations, and a vacation (only possible between semesters), I forgot to link it until now!

  3. Janelle says:

    Forgot to link up my reviews last month! Ugh. We’re starting out June with a review of Square Cat.

  4. Yay! I’m back. =) We have upgraded our participation to 120 books, having finished our original goal of 72 I believe. This is our 76th out of 120. =)

    Linking with 2 books from the “you wouldn’t want to be” history series.

  6. Katie says:

    It looks like I’ve finished the challenge already! With story time this week, I read my last 12 books, numbers 189 to 200, which are linked above.

    • Wow! That’s fantastic Katie! Maybe I need to include a mega huge picture book reader challenge with 500 as the goal? Hehe. You are still absolutely welcome to keep linking up for entries each month! 🙂

  7. We’re sharing Tales from Outer Suburbia by Shaun Tan with everyone. While technically this may also be considered an illustrated YA novel or even a graphic novel by some, I feel that Shaun’s talent could likewise be shared in the picture book genre. =)

  8. Four more books brings me to a total of 73 toward my goal of 120. I’m getting there! In this post, I’m reviewing “Jessica” and “Owen” by Kevin Henkes, “Bad Kitty” by Nick Bruel, and “Clarice Bean, That’s Me” by Lauren Child.

    Adding three more books that we all loved- a new find for us is the story of a young Japenese boy who was instrumental in opening relations between Japan and the west. An amazing story.
