#pb10for10

Today is such a great day, because it’s 2018 picture book 10 for 10 day!  Hooray!  Today is the day we get to post our 10 favorite picture books, and share what we love here. Thanks to Cathy at Reflect & Refine: Building a Learning Community, and Mandy Robek at Enjoy and Embrace Learning, picture book lovers can come together in one place to share their love of picture books. This is such a great way to discover new books, and reconnect with old favorites.

Here is my list below. I hope you enjoy them.

You can click on any of the books, and you will be taken to an amazon description and option to buy.

Madness Poetry

I’m so excited to announce that I will be competing in the 2018 March Madness Poetry competition beginning TODAY!  64 Authletes (Writer athletes) will be competing against each other for the title, and the grand prize: The Thinkier trophy pictured above.  Head over today and sign up to read, vote, and have fun!

The match up brackets mimic basketball’s March Madness brackets. The Authletes are provided a single vocabulary word (think SAT/GRE Vocab.) and must create a poem suitable for children, within a defined character limit (Not Easy!). This is my first year entering and I am so excited, and nervous. There is so much great talent participating. I will be writing under my proper name: Jean O’Connor

Wish me luck!
