300-Picture Book Challenge

Shar Mohr's 2013 Challenge

During PiBoIdMo, I was introduced to an inspiring fellow writer.  Her name is Shar Mohr, and she blogs at My Picture Book Writing Journey

Shar has decided to challenge herself (and any of us who'd like to journey with her) by reading 300 picture books this year.  I hope you will join us as we immerse ourselves in this endearing art form.

Her idea dovetails with my annual reading list.  I don't usually keep track of the picture books I read, so this challenge appeals to the list-maker as well as the book-lover in me.

Here are the picture books I've read since January first.  I'll post an update at least once a week, including any particular recommendations.
