Challenge yourself - Retarte a ti mismo

Finishing ReFoReMo March Reading Challenge and beginning RhyPiBoMo April Reading Challenges. Reading is fun
Mis Retos de lectura del mes de Marzo y Abril, 
Retarte a ti mismo!

Third Annual ReFoReMo 2017

I joined The ReFoReMo Challenge
(Reading for Research Month Challenge)

This event was developed to help picture book writers reform writing by reading and researching mentor texts. 

This Facebook community is an extension of ReFoReMo. The purpose of this group is to discuss, inquire, and rely on one another and stellar picture books that exhibit great writing and illustration. 

Founded by:
Carrie Charley Brown-Founder & Co. Coordinator

Kirsti Call - Co-Coordinator

I had fun with ReFoReMo Challenge

As a reader; the ReFoReMo Reading List  grabbed my attention and for that reason, I joined the challenge. As a writer; the readings and bloggers had helped me focus to improve my own stories.

My last books to read

More info.

Thank you ReFoReMo family!
