This a great challenge by There’s a Book (a fabulous children’s book blog, by the way) that ANYONE can participate in. You don’t have to be a blogger to join! You can read to your child OR you can just read them yourself! Who’s in? I am! I am going to try to read 200 picture books and blog on them with my kids during the year.
To win either book (Cows Can’t Jump –signed by author Dave Reisman and I See the Sun in China by Dedie King), please leave me a comment. If you state a convincing case of why you need the book, chances are you will be the winner. If you don’t win but want to check the book out at Amazon, just click on the image of the book.

It is a rare occasion when my husband raves about a picture book. He’s read his fair share of picture books to our three children but bedtime stories is my favorite time of the day, not his. And while he will read a book over and over again, there aren’t too many picture books in our house that he is excited to re-read.
An internet security company called AVG surveyed moms in North America and parts of Europe and found that in the U.S. 92% of children under the age of 2 have an online presence of some sort.
You know how there are authors that your children always wait impatiently for the next new book? And maybe they do a great series which isn’t that much of a stretch. But then there are other authors that either 1) write in a wide range of genres from picture books to easy chapter books to YA fiction and EVERYTHING they write is amazing? Or 2) maybe it’s just that they never jave a dud even though everyone is allowed a dud when they are a prolific author. Or 3) their work is crazy imaginative! How do they DO that?!
