2022 Children’s Book Week Theme and Poster Revealed on PW

February 8, 2022

With the goal of promoting conversation about why kids choose to read the books they do, Every Child a Reader and the Children’s Book Council have announced the 2022 Children’s Book Week slogan, “How Do You Book?” The thought-provoking theme asks participants in the literacy celebration to think about what they read, where they read, and how they read.

“We wanted to have a theme that was actionable and asked young people to think about reading from lots of different angles,” said associate executive director Shaina Birkhead. “We loved the idea of ‘book’ being a verb because books and reading are such an active and vibrant way to engage with the world.”

This year’s event, which will take place May 2–8 and November 7–13, will also include the first annual Floyd Cooper Day (in May), in honor of the late author-illustrator, to drive further interest in CBW.
