40 x 4 Picture Book Challenge: Week 4

Welcome to Week 4 of the 40 x 4 Picture Book Challenge! We’re reading 40 picture books in 4 weeks. What a journey it has been!

For my first batch of books, I focused on a topic. Grief. I wanted to write about how to help little ones through the grieving process, so I ordered in from our local library as many picture books on grief that I could find.

The next batch of books I ordered in focused on 2 authors. Mo Willems and Rosemary Wells. I really admire both authors and am constantly re-reading their books to our grandkids that I already own, so I wanted to expand my knowledge base for more of their awesome titles.

The last batch of books I read focused on an award. The Caldecott, to be specific. I always like to read these award-winning books but somehow I had gotten behind on the most current winners. So I ordered in the winners from our library as well as some of the runners up.

What have you been reading this month?


  1. I’ve been reading comp titles for two ideas I’m fleshing out, as well as new releases. Great idea to catch up on Caldecott winners!

    • Good for you! Thanks for sharing your journey.

  2. It’s been biographies for me…What Miss Mitchell Saw is a favorite. And The Very Oldest Pear Tree too. Trees count, right? 😉

    • Oh that’s great! And you made me smile!!!
