Children’s Book Week

Written by Wynn Zetterberg

November 9-15 is Children’s Book Week. It was establish in 1919 making it the longest national literacy initiative in our country.  It even became so popular that the Children’s Book Council, the council who oversees the Children’s Book Week, decided to have two weeks each year for it, one in the spring and one in the fall.

The Children’s Department is celebrating this week with a fun display.

You can join in on the fun too. Here are some fun ways you can participate at home:

  • Read aloud with your family and friends
  • Visit the library or a bookstore
  • Find videos online with Q&A’s, storytimes, and more from your favorite authors
  • Create your own bookmarks, book trailers, or even a character costume party

However you celebrate, the important part is to have fun and share your experiences with others to help promote literacy in our youth.

Here is a list of some of the favorites from the Children’s Department staff:
