Yay! It’s Picture Book Month!
Looking for a reason to celebrate? Look no further! November is Picture Book Month! Picture Book Month is an international literacy initiative that celebrates the print picture book. It was founded by author and storyteller Dianne de Las Casas.
Each day of the month, a new post from a picture book champion (author, illustrator, etc.) explaining why he/she thinks picture books are important is featured on the Picture Book Month website. What could be better than that! Check the site out here: Picture Book Month.
But there’s more! You will also find a promo kit and information on how you can get involved, a teacher’s guide and other Picture Book Month activities, and links to tons of picture book resources, bloggers, literacy organizations, authors, illustrators, and more. If you are a teacher, librarian, parent, or author, or if you’re just an individual who loves picture books, then let’s go! It’s time to celebrate picture books!!
