Let’s Celebrate Picture Book Month!

Picture Book Month is an international literacy initiative that celebrates the print picture book during the month of November. Whether you’re a librarian or an educator or a writer or an illustrator or a parent or a picture book lover, why not consider joining the festivities? There’s so much to celebrate! 

Visit the Picture Book Month website for more information about ways to celebrate, share, and read today’s post: Why Picture Books Are Important by Tomie dePaola. Here’s my favorite line:

I propose that Picture Books can be great art

and great art makes for a great people and a great society.

After all, reading begins with a picture book!
