1000 Picture Books in 2016~March

ReFoReMo winner 2016 badge

Reading for Research Month is such a fantastic motivator. The insightful blog posts and mentor text recommendations were outstanding this year. Follow the new site to become a member of the ReFoReMo family!

ReFoReMo helped me revise several WIPs this month. One of the recommended mentor texts gave me an idea for my March 12 x 12 draft. I have always read a lot of picture books, but this reading challenge has helped me hone my craft. I am studying these picture books (with tools I learned in ReFoReMo) and applying what I learned to my own writing.

Be sure to join the One Thousand Picture Books Facebook group as well as the Goodreads group.

Here’s my March reading list with Goodreads links:

  1. I loved the story of Bobby and Ms. Kirby in My Teacher Is A Monster, I bought it for my math teacher ( he laughed and understood) but to tell the truth it is too good to give it away, so I will buy one for me and for Easy too :o)

  2. Some very wonderful books! I’m going to use your list to check out ones I haven’t read from our library. Thanks!
