Young Reader's Challenge 2009

January 1 - December 31, 2009

Becky from Becky's Book Reviews is hosting the Young Readers Challenge for 2009. The rules are:

  1. Read 12 children's books in 2009.'Children's books' are defined as anything written to be read (or read aloud) to children 12 and under.
  2. No list is required. If you choose to post one, you can change it as needed. But it isn't required at all.
  3. Audio books work.
  4. Rereads are acceptable, but try to mix it up old and new if you can.
  5. Overlaps with other challenges are acceptable.
  6. You may consider yourself 'finished' with the challenge if/when you complete the twelfth book. (You could finish it January if you're ambitious. But there is no requirement to read one book per month all year long.) If you want to keep going past twelve books, that's fine.
If you want to challenge yourself further you might consider going with a theme:

*Read twelve picture books published in 2009
*Read twelve children's fantasy titles published since 2000
*Read twelve children's books that have been made into a movie
*Read three books on shapes, three books on numbers/counting, three books on the alphabet, three books on colors.
