When I founded ReFoReMo last year, I knew that mentor texts had the power to impact many lives. I had no idea, though, that it would actually come together in such a short time and be successful. After having an entire year to prepare this time around, Reading for Research Month 2016 is shaping into a wonderful learning experience. Along with my co-coordinator, Kirsti Call, we'd like to thank these wonderful author-educators that have opted to share inspiration, tips, and recommendations with you for our upcoming challenge. What a fabulous line up! All of our guests are kidlit professionals in one shape or another: author, illustrator, librarian, teacher, editor or agent. Adding all of you to the mix, it’s amazing to have so many picture book addicts in one place at one time! We are grateful to connect with each and every one!
You will find a static copy of this schedule in our ReFoReMo drop down menu, as well. Look for the Schedule & Coordinators tab.
In the weeks leading up to the challenge, please follow us for updates. You can plan on registration details, a chance to win picture books, and testimony from past participants.
