Hello Reading Friends!
We are starting something fun and new in March. We are huge fans of the classics here at Jump into a Book. Throughout the years we’ve read old classics and discovered new ones.
This year I’d like to discover even more classics and I thought it might be fun if we all share a favorite classic every month starting March 1.
Every month during our Read Kids Classic Challenge we are going to present one classic that we can’t live without. We’d like you to join as well.
To Participate-We’d like you to share one kids classic that you can’t live without every month. Share it on your blog, vlog and social media using the hashtag #readkidsclassics once a month to let us know what you’ve been reading.
If you should choose to post about your kids classic choice, please let us know the following within your blog post:
- WHEN did you Discover This Classic?
- WHY did you Chose to Read It with your Family?
- WHAT Makes It A Classic?
- WHAT did you Think of This Classic?
Here’s how I classify classics as old or new (this isn’t an official classification it’s just sort of the way I think of it):
Old Kid’s Classics are those books written before 1950. New Kid’s Classics are those books written after 1950.
But that’s not all
When you sign up for the 2016 Read Kid Classics Challenge every month you will get a PDF that you can download which will have loads of activities on the particular book we’ve chosen to share at Jump into a Book. Each edition of Read the Kids Classics will highlight the story, have good things to eat in our kitchen called Table of Contents, give behind the scenes gossip about the author, easy crafts that kids can do on their own in our craftiness section, questions for the curious, explorations into the world of our featured books, as well as further connections via books like this one and topic booklists so you can find more good reads and finally a visit to the word wizard for some word play.
And Still There’s More-Free Books!
Sign up and join Jump Into A Book’s #ReadKidClassics Challenge to participate in our monthly adventure of sharing personal classic children’s favorites and activities.
On the last day of every month, JIAB will go on a book adventure; an adventure that will put participants in the running to win a bundle of book classics to fill your shelves with. This adventure could be in the form of a Instagram scavenger hunt or as easy as commenting here on JIAB. We just want participants to have fun and earn free books!
As part of this fun book-ish adventure, I will be creating free monthly PDFs of a #ReadKidClassics book and book extensions to give to all participants for their own family reading and fun.
We’re so excited about our challenge. Sign up below and we’ll see you there 🙂
