CHILDREN'S BOOK WEEK

Hello! Another month is almost past. Where did it go? This week, we are celebrating CHILDREN'S BOOK WEEK. April 29 - May 5, 2019.




This year’s poster is designed by Yuyi Morales, creator of 2019 winner of the Pura Belpré Illustrator Award for Dreamers and the 2015 Caldecott Honor for Viva Frida. The 2019 poster features this year’s Children’s Book Week slogan, Read Now ● Read Forever highlighting the celebration of 100 years of Children’s Book Week.

You can find a lot more here: Children's Book Week. Some neat stuff you can use on your blog or print out for schools and other places.

I was not a reader when I was young. Now, I'm trying to make up for lost time.

Happy Reading!

    1. I hadn't remembered it, Karin, until I ran across the information on the Internet. A hundred years is a long time.

  2. 100 sure is a feat. Kids books for the win! Great artwork was done too.

  4. Some local authors got together and we did a book fair to celebrate this anniversary! It's the longest children's book week celebration in the U.S. I wonder if there's something longer running elsewhere?

    1. What a great idea, Lee. Sounds like fun. I don't know if there may be something elsewhere. It's possible. Maybe SCBWI has some information. I'll try to check. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. The poster is lovely, Jess. I hope some teachers used it with their classes this year. I haven't read Dreamers. Add it to my list, which is forever long. :)
