Children’s Readathon – Authors Who Blog Books (Week 4)

Posted on Updated on

Our fourth week focuses on children’s authors who also blog. A few dozen people are participating this month by reading and sharing reviews on many childhood favorites that were selected in a previous poll. Read from 8/25 to 8/30 and post your review on or before 8/31. Please email or message me if you’re participating or posting a review so I can add you to the list below of blogs to watch. You can add in anything into your post besides a review, e.g. giveaways, author profiles, background material, educational ideas, etc. Have fun with it!

Participating Books / Blogs

  • Robbie Cheadle’s “Sir Chocolate” Series
    • This Is My Truth Now*
  • Maxine Sylvester’s “Ronaldo” Series

Welcome to the Children’s Books Readathon held in August 2018. Join in the fun to read between 8 and 12 books in August 2018 and share your reviews with the group. Don’t worry about the count of books, as (1) you can read only the ones you want and (2) some are less than 25 pages!

    I didn’t think I was going to be able to participate this week. I’m not sure how many books are in the Sir Chocolate series but I was able to find 5 of them on Scribd so I will be reading those this week.
