Wow. Just wow. I am blown away by the great response to the first ever KidLit BookDare reading challenge. Thank you to everyone who participated. That said, August is here, which means a whole new set of BookDares. Not familiar with the BookDare? Here’s a quick review:
- Visit the blog each month for the 4 themes

- Get entered to win the prize
- Read a bonus book or 4

Let’s get to the themes!
Here are the four themes for August. You can read any type (e.g., Picture Book, Middle Grade, Graphic Novel, etc.) of kidlit book you want for each theme. This month’s prize will be a copy of The Story of Fish and Snail by Deborah Freedman (@DeborahFreedman). I loved this book. It was my adventure/trip book for the July BookDare.

And here are your August bonus themes:
