It’s Children’s Book Week

The Children’s Book Council (CBC) is celebrating Children's Book Week May 10 to 16. The CBC is a nonprofit organization. It is the only trade association devoted exclusively to the publishers of books for children. The CBC partners with other literacy organizations and sponsors many events to encourage children and teens to read. Check out the CBC site for some lists of books and other resources to help you find wonderful books for your children. ( And while you are at it, why not make every week the best week to read to your children?

  1. Thanks for sharing this site. It inspired my post today.


What I think . . .

There are all kinds of readers. Some—like my daughter and me—are never without a book to read for pleasure. Others—like my son—are careful, analytical, and curious readers who read primarily to seek information from the page.

No matter what kind of reader your child becomes, you can help him or her get started. After all, you are your child’s first teacher. And, best of all, you can have some fun in the process.

Please feel free to share your own ideas. Tell me about ways you've enjoyed reading with your child.
