Today marks the first day of the Classic Children’s Literature Challenge, what I hope will be a fun month of revisting old favorites and meeting new ones. Even though it says “Challenge” in the title, the most important part of this month is to have fun as we challenge ourselves to look at classics of children’s literature through the lens of all our reading and life experiences since we’ve left childhood and to appreciate these works not just for their nostalgia, but also as good literature.
Starting today, the Event Logo at the top right of the blog will link to this page, which will be the link page for the event. Use the comments below to leave links to your posts on your reading this month. Please ONLY link to your posts related to this month on this page and leave comments or questions on the other pages for this event. The Children’s Classics Event in the menu at the top of the blog will also link to this page. There will be a separate page for The Princess and the Goblin readalong. At the end of the month, I will round up all the links onto one post. (If there are enough links, I will do weekly roundups.)
I’m not particular–at long as you read a children’s book from before 1960 and post on it before the end of the month, it’s never too late to join!
