Every year for the month of April bloggers take on an amazing challenge where each day we write a blog post based on a letter of the alphabet.
This year, I had big plans which some wise writers quickly dissuaded me of. So without further ado, my theme for the AtoZ Blogging Challenge will be...
For Writers and Readers
Each day I'll post something for Writers of Kidlit and something for Readers of Kidlit. Sometimes it will a tip, maybe a book recommendation, or perhaps creative way to read a book. I'll have a tab at the top of the blog labeled "AtoZ" so that you can click on it to see all the posts so far. Feel free to read them in any order.

P.S. I realized I have abused the word "amazing" in this blog post, but no - that is not my A word for the challenge.
I write about, with, for, and around kids all day. (Well, maybe I do the dishes too. Sometimes.)
