Finally the annual summer moment we all have been waiting for! Announcing #kbcBookBingo2023!

It’s back with even more awesome prompts to keep our #kbcchildoos really busy busy! Without further ado, let’s get into what lies ahead this summer…

Like last year, we have three categories:
#kbcBookBingoToddler (0-3 years) [Check out awesome sample from 2022]
#kbcBookBingoJr (4-7 years) [Check out awesome sample from 2022]
#kbcBookBingoSr (8 years+) [Check out awesome sample from 2022]

So how does #kbcBookBingo work?

In the next 30 45 days days your child needs to:

a) read the listed kind of books according to the prompts (in any order!) [if you have read the books recently in the last month or so that’s totally fine!]

b) then share the list along with a mini review of each book in a few lines here on

c) click the group photograph of ALL THE BOOKS YOUR CHILD HAS READ – either spread out or as a stack or a combo of the two! And then add the image in the post here. (kindly ensure your image size is LESS THAN 200KB – 1OOKB is ideal)

d) If your child is in between an age group – eg 3 years and 6 months, then please stick to the Toddler (0-3 years) group.
