We welcome all families and kids to celebrate Children’s Book Week (May 1-7 and Nov. 6-12) 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! (coming soon)
