Happy Children's Book Week!
Originally started in 1919, Children's Book Week encourages children to enjoy new authors and books, and is celebrated in schools, libraries, homes, and bookstores during a selected week each May. During this event, celebrate children's literature with storytelling, parties, author and illustrator appearances, and other literacy events in your school and community. As part of the celebration, children are invited to help select the top children's book of the year by voting online or at their school or library.
Here are a few of mine and my daughter’s favorite children’s books:
Shimmeree by Stephen Cosgrove
Tikki Tikki Tembo by Arlene Mosel
Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
