Take the Challenge!

The third annual Reading for Research Month Challenge registration is open! Thanks to Lori Nawyn for this adorable 2017 badge she created for you to share and or add to your blog. 

Known as ReFoReMo, this challenge was founded by Carrie Charley Brown and Kristi Call. Their big idea was to help picture book lovers who are also writers improve their craft. How? By reading, studying, and talking about picture books throughout the month of March. They invited authors, illustrators, agents and educators to provide mentor text recommendations and write about what makes them great. 

Are you ready to take the challenge? Follow this link and the directions to register. 

Hope you join me, Carrie, Kristi and Janie in the challenge. And we get to chat with you in the comments section of each post or in the Facebook group. 

Happy Reading!
