How can we do this? For the biography or auto-biography we could read about the life of Judy Blume, Theodore Giesel, Laura Ingalls Wilder, or anyone else you're a fan of. You could even go out of the world of kidlit and read a biography of say ... Henry VIII. What's that I hear? You don't want to leave the world of kidlit? Easy peezy. Read a how-to book on writing for children.
For reviewers, reading most of this list will be a snap since you have the books you review on your bookshelf or in your e-reader.
Most of these suggestions are self - explanatory. For instance, I notice that there's one up there that says to read a book by someone younger than you. Read one written by a young author or an author that you know is younger than you.
Many of these books are already on my bookshelf or on my e - reader. One just came in today's mail and I can't wait to get to it! It's a self - help book and yes, self - help is on the list.
The only one listed that I would REALLY find challenging is "read a book from my childhood." Hmmmm. The only store I know of that might have 'Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel' is 300 miles away from me. This store has so many books. Even books from way back when. I wonder if I can buy it over the internet somewhere?
So, as I said before, I challenge YOU to do this along with me. Have fun!
