Our official twibbon. You'll be able to add one in January.
The return of the #kidlitart Picture Book Dummy Challenge! 

For those of you who have been around #kidlitart since the beginning, this was a challenge started by Bonnie Adamson, Wendy Martin, and (silently) myself back in 2009. It kicked off in 2010 and was a great success. We did it again in 2011 bigger and better. When the chat went on hiatus last year, the challenge was unofficially carried on by an enthusiastic member of our #kidlitart community.

Well, with the return of the #kidlitart chat in 2013, we've decided why not bring back one of the most useful tools for those starting out in this crazy business? (And get a kick in the pants for any projects we might be letting sit around in a drawer as a bonus.)

The guidelines, schedule, and FAQ are on the next post. Be sure to read up and sign up in the comments on the next post so we know who's going to be joining us on this party boat. ha!
