PB Challenge

Our log sheets and google doc scroll

We finished up Picture Book month!

We did it! PB & J for everyone!

159 students and a few teachers completed the challenge by logging 30 titles in November. (That's about 50% of our elementary school!)

Each of the 159 earned a "PB Challenge" certificate

All together, we read 5,345 picture books (that's an average of 178 each day!)

Thanks to everyone who participated and especially to our teachers who made picture books an even bigger part of their literacy lessons this month.

And, in case there's any doubt about why picture books are so important, check out this video created by a librarian in the US, Cathy Potter, from Falmouth Maine.

  1. Dear Mrs. Ducharme,
    I love how your whole school got involved with Picture Book Month! I want to save this idea for next year and get our students and staff more involved too!
    Great idea!
