Happy New Year!: #PictureBookADayChallenge2018 & Giveaway

Posted by

Happy New Year Readers!!!

One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to read a new (to me) picture book every day for a year. I have decided to host a CHALLENGE for you to read with me. This is my way of encouraging you to read aloud to the children in your life. Reading is a fundamental part of child development – even for infants (or in my case – I was read to while in the womb)! So many studies have shown the importance of reading aloud to your kids, and what a lasting impact it can have on their lives. My hope is that this challenge helps make reading a daily habit in your family!

Follow Mini Moments of Magic on Instagram (@MiniMomentsofMagic) or Twitter (@MMMkidlitblog) to check out what I’m reading! I will be trying to read a new book every day, but you are welcome to re-read family favorites!

At the end of every month, I will do a roundup post here on the blog and share with you which books stood out from the rest. I will also giveaway a copy of my favorite book of the month to a lucky reader!

Giveaway Rules To Enter:
1. Read a picture book to your child (or inner child)!
2. Follow Mini Moments of Magic on Twitter or Instagram
3. Post a photo of you/your cute kid(s) reading a picture book on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #PictureBookADayChallenge2018 and TAG the blog!
Bonus for January: Share this blog post on Facebook to earn 5 extra entries!!!

That’s all you have to do! Every day that you share your #PictureBookADayChallenge2018 photo will count as one entry. I will announce the winner during my monthly roundup post!

Leave me a comment below if you excited about joining me for this challenge!

Happy Reading!
❤ Jordan

P.S. Come back here Wednesday for my post on how to get free/cheap books!



  1. Hi! Very nice and good Idea! I love Reading, and too think it’s important – not least the tradition of telling stories/read out loud, at least for the children. Is it okay if I read Swedish picturebooks? (Otherwise I will run out of books kind of fast … 😜)
    Best wishes

  2. This is an awesome idea!! So many great ones out there to choose from.
    If you are running low later in the year, I’m hoping to publish a children’s book by the summer! Maybe you could see how it compares to others you will have read. 🙂
    Happy Reading and I look forward to following the journey!
