Children’s Book Week

National Children’s Book Week is observed this year from May 7-May 13. You will find everything you need to celebrate books and reading on this site sponsored by the Children’s Book Council. Print out the official bookmark, designed by author and illustrator, Lane Smith. See the poster designed by David Wiesner, and perhaps, most important of all, encourage your students to vote for their favorite book. Activities include story starters by many children’s authors, and word-search and crossword puzzles. There is a digital toolbox for teachers and librarians, and suggestions on how to make this week a community affair. Celebrate books and the transformative power of reading.
