1,000 Books


So, last year I read close to 1,000 picture books as part of a group challenge. I tried to read the newest books I could lay my hands on. I recently read some blog posts by David McMullin in which he shared loads of data from the 1,000 books he'd read. I realized that I had some useful information to share from all my labors. Of my books I had:

182 in rhyme-yes they do get published (almost 20%)!!
3 in a how-to format
14 circular/cumulative ie The House that Jack Built- this could be because I like this format
12 metafiction
10 holiday
21 about a tender topic such as divorce, the death of a friend, being a foster child
and 132 that I considered my favorites.
