We love the theme of this year's Children's Book Week, "One World, Many Stories," which prompts us to think about the rich, beautifully diverse world we live in and the importance of spreading tolerance and joy through books, storytelling, and art. 

Children's Book Week is commemorating its 98th anniversary this year! Administered by Every Child a Reader and the Children’s Book Council (CBC), the aim is to instill a lifelong love of reading in kids. You can learn about this year's events--all free and open to the public--at everychildareader.net/cbw/intro. Make sure to head over there and download the free activities and this amazing poster featuring art by the ever-talented, amazingly fun Christian Robinson to display at home or in your school library. And be sure to check out the author readings and events happening in your area!
