This year’s Children’s Book Week is less than 50 days away. Mark your calendar for the week of May 2 – 8 when the official Children’s Book Week takes place. Events are held around the country at local bookstores but you can host your own celebration, at home or at school, if you can’t make it to these locations.
Voting is now open for the 2011 Children’s Choice Book Awards . Voting ends April 29th so you have plenty of time to read all of the books by each of the finalists in time to make your decision on the author and illustrator of your choice.
For me, reading with my son is the best way to end our day together. At the end of the night, lying in bed with my husband while he reads next to me is another magical moment. We both look forward to the day when our baby boy will be able to join us in the reading circle.
Please share your favorite memory around reading, your favorite children’s book, children’s book author, illustrator, or anything else you’d like to share regarding books and reading with or to a child.
