Children’s Readathon – Authors Who Blog

Our last week focuses on authors who blog about children’s books. See below for the winning books selected in the poll. You’ll find review links as everyone posts them. 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!

Children's Books Readathon - August 2018

Participating Books / Blogs


*Blog links will be available when the review is posted and the person notifies me.

Background / Guidelines

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! See below for the 4 categories across the month as well as all the guidelines for how to participate.

    Question – I have read three books from Maxine Sylvester (Ronaldo Series) and the reviews are on my blog already. Do those count toward this last week of the readathon?

      Sure! I’m not re-reading mine either since it was so re-cent. I’m posting a new post this weekend talking a bit about her and adding all the links. 🙂

    Thank you again, Jay, for hosting this fun event. I was very happy to discover new children’s authors and re-read some well known children’s books too. I am also listening to another Agatha Christie book. My son, Gregory, and I are both revisiting her books after your previous readathon.
