February Reading Roundup

Happy Leap Day!  Are you doing something daring today? I'm already married so I think proposing is out, I want to do something daring today. My husband thinks we should have fugu (puffer fish) for dinner. I'm not convinced- I want daring, not stupid!

 This was a big month, as it was the first month I hosted the Blogging Carnival on Bilingualism. Despite a few time zone glitches, I think it went well. I feel like every month our little bilingual family comes closer for a bit, even though we are all over the world and speaking many many languages.  It was really fun, actually, and I hope to do it again!

On the good news front, I am 29/29 days on my read aloud challenge. This has been a great month. My kids are good at asking in the morning if it is a busy day, and reminding me to read if it is!

Since July I have been doing the Canadian Reading Challenge #5. I didn't read as much this month as last, with 4 Canadian picture books (Viola Desmond Won't Be Budged, Birthday Suit, Franklin in the Dark, and Chicken, Pig, Cow's First Fight) and only 1 adult book.  More next month I hope!

Next is the Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge 2012. I am at 4/20 books marked off already, having read Viola Desmond Won't Be Budged, and Knockin' on Wood: Starring Peg Leg Bates this month.

I knocked off my first book for the Reading the World Challenge! I hit the Caribbean with Birthday Suit, which made me long for warmer weather.

The Read to Me Picture Book Challenge is pretty hard to keep track of, but between here and Goodreads I think I have been able to count most of what we have read!
This month we read Valentine's Day, Pinkalicious Pink of Hearts, Bosley Sees the World, Viola Desmond Won't Be Budged, Press Here, Birthday Suit, The Snow Day, Knockin' on Wood: Starring Peg Leg Bates, Franklin in the Dark, and Chicken, Pig, Cow's First Fight to make 20/120.

How was your reading this month? Are you doing any challenges? February is a short month so it's easy to fall behind.


  1. I love the reading out loud challenge! I read to my daughter every night and she reads to me. I wish I had signed up earlier! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Liebster means "dearest" in German, just nominated you and your blog!
