Children's Book Week (CBW) 2012


Sorry for the late posting (as usual, lol), but this week we recognize Children's Book Week (CBW) which runs May 7th-13th.

Taken directly from their website at www.bookweekonline.com, here is what CBW is all about:

"Children's Book Week is the national celebration of books and reading for youth.

Established in 1919, Children's Book Week is the longest-running literacy initiative in the country. Each year, books for young people and the joy of reading are feted for a full week with author and illustrator appearances, storytelling, parties, and other book-related events at schools, libraries, bookstores, museums, and homes from coast to coast!

Administered by Every Child A Reader and sponsored by the Children's Book Council, Children's Book Week celebrates the transformative power of literacy."

God Bless!
