Call for contributions to the next I Can Read celebration

Posted on | April 29, 2011 | 6 Comments

I Can Read is a monthly celebration of all things related to new and emergent readers, and I’m hosting the next party, from May 13-17th. If you’ve reviewed easy readers or illustrated chapter books in the past year or have written a post about encouraging beginning readers, please consider submitting a post for the roundup by emailing me a link to your post.

Of course, with almost two weeks still to go, there’s plenty of time to write a brand spanking new post too. To get some ideas for a post, take a look at these past I Can Read celebrations:

  • April 2011 – I Can Read at Jean Little Library
  • March 2011 – I Can Read at Brimful Curiosities
  • December 2010 – I Can Read at Playing by the book


  • Basically, I Can Read is all about sharing finds, approaches, successes and more when it comes to books aimed at those just beginning to read for themselves, or those consolidating their reading skills. So if you’ve a review, commentary, or an experience you want to share on this topic do email it to me (zoe dot toft at kuvik dot net) before May 13th and I’ll include it!

      That would be great Melissa – do take a look at past carnivals to get a flavour for the focus of the carnival – on early literacy rather than children’s literature in general.

      Quick Q? Is this different from the Carnival of Children’s Literature you’re hosting for May as well? I’m confused. Sorry!

      Hi Danielle, yes this is different. I Can Read very much has an early literacy only focus – look at the past carnivals to get a feel. The Carnival of Children’s Literature is much broader as you know – anything from board books to YA/Adult crossover.
