Children's Book Week

There are several celebrations on the calendar this week, like Police Week, National Transportation Week, American Craft Beer Week and also Children’s Book Week. Since 1919, Children’s Book Week has been celebrated nationally in schools, libraries, bookstores and anywhere there are children and books. Educators, librarians, booksellers and families celebrate children’s books and the love of reading. One of the best ways to celebrate the week is to read aloud to your child. Some read-aloud resources include, “The Read-Aloud Handbook” by Jim Trelease and “Reading Magic: Why Reading Aloud to Our Children Will Change Their Lives Forever” by Mem Fox.
