CHILDREN'S BOOK WEEK~ Celebrating Children's Literacy

Happy Children’s Book Week!
(May 12-18, 2014)
The countdown to Children’s Book Week is nearing its final hours. Excitement is building.
One of the longest running efforts to encourage and promote children’s literacy, Children’s Book Week is eagerly anticipated by children, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles—you name it. Since it’s first week in 1919, Children’s Book Week has reminded us that a nation of readers is a nation that will continue to move forward.

Click this link to see if your area is holding any special events for this important week that shines a light on children's literacy.

In celebration of this event, I am adding a quick recap of some reviews posted over the past year of some fantastic examples of children’s literature. Each title will take you to a link of that post—a year in books, as it were.

It’s a Firefly Night by Dianne Ochiltree

My Father is Taller than a Tree by Joseph Bruchac

In addition to this, my ebooks that are currently available on Amazon are available as a free download on Monday, May 12 and Tuesday, May 13.

When Violet was Blue—for children ages 3 through 6

So, instead of reading a lengthy blog post, grab a good children’s book (or 2 or 3), find a comfy spot to sit with your children and—Read, Read. Read!
