New Feature: Author Study Challenge

Welcome! New to ABC and 123?
Please check out our FAQ in the left sidebar.

We are looking forward to rolling out a new monthly feature beginning in October!
Introducing the Monthly Author Challenge!

Today we will be throwing out the challenge. You will have until the end of October (October 22nd, to be exact) to familiarize yourself with the author, plan an activity using one of his/her books, publish your post, and send us the link!

Unlike our Saturday Show and Tell we will be compiling all of the links and ideas into our scheduled post. You will want to submit your post to us via email to be included. You Author Challenge submission should include: your name/blog's name, the book(s) you used by that author, the ages of the children who participated, and a link to your post. (If you do not have a blog and would like to participate, that is great. Please send us a bit of information about the activities you completed and any pictures you'd like included). If you use an idea you have seen somewhere else, please give credit where it is due within your post.

We are really looking forward to seeing what types of creativity abounds, finding new ideas, and trying some new activities of our own!

Ready for the October challenge...
