31 Days of NEW Kids Picture Books: 2015 edition

Last year I joined the 31 Days of writing challenge for the first time and enjoyed it so much I thought I'd try again this year. My local library has a section just for new books that have arrived in the last 6 months, typically published within the last year, so while I'm following the same format as I did last October, the content will be completely new!


I'd really love the accountability of knowing people are reading these posts so that I don't give up part way in... so if you're going to be looking forward to discovering NEW kids picture books every day with me, will you leave me a little comment? :)

  1. Looking forward to this - and hoping you'll share the style of writing for each of the books too. I only like reading picture books to my kids that are written in rhyme (like the one about the baby in the bubble or the Cupcake Princess).

    Can't wait!
