Children’s Book Week

As part of the longest-running national celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading, over 2,300 schools, libraries, and bookstores will celebrate Children’s Book Week from May 6 to May 12 from coast to coast in all 50 states.

This year marks the 105th anniversary of Children’s Book Week; the theme for this year’s celebration is No Rules. Just Read. The 2024 Children’s Book Week poster was created by Sophie Blackall. Sophie invites readers young and old to join the fun as the year’s official spokesperson.
