Armchair Cybils

I have always loved reading children's books.  The color, playfulness, whimsy, rhyme... fun!

Just a few days ago I came across the Armchair Cybils at Hope Is The Word.   Honestly it was the eye catching graphic that grabbed my attention.   But,  as I started reading about what it really was, I knew I had to participate.  It would be a wonderful way for me to get to know authors and illustrators, and a fun way to share them with my kids.  One day I would like to put together a study on children's authors and illustrators.   This seems like the perfect first step.

Since this is my first year participating, I don't have all the details down yet. 

I will let Amy explain it.

"The Armchair Cybils challenge is a challenge hosted by yours truly at Hope Is the Word.  I thought it would be really fun to play along and read as many of the Cybils nominated titles as I can during the Cybils judging period, which runs from October 15 (or before, but this is the date the nominations are closed) until February 14, and I'd love for you to join me!  For more information about the Cybils, this post explains it better than I ever could."  Amy @ Hope Is The Word

Just read as many books as you can and write a blog post about each title, or you can do one post on all of them.  See, easy and fun!  Don't forget to link up at Hope Is The Word.

Even if you aren't a blogger, join the fun.  You can't go wrong reading great children's books.

Are you with me?
