We welcome all families and kids to celebrate Children’s Book Week (May 2-8 and Nov. 7-13) at home!
Children’s Book Week is not only a celebration of books, but of connection. It is a vehicle to unite kids and adults with books, authors, and illustrators in order to foster a love of reading in all.
Start making your plans now with our free resources and suggestions!
We encourage young people and families to do whatever they are able to celebrate leading up to and during the week. Need some inspiration? Check out these ideas!
We would love to see how to celebrate via social media. Make sure to use #HowDoYouBook in your posts and tag The Children’s Book Council.
Follow us on social media to see updates and pictures from #HowDoYouBook celebrations across the country.
