National Picture Book Month!

There’s nothing like turning the page of a beautiful picture book!  November is National Picture Book Month! This international literacy initiative celebrates the [print] picture book during the month of November.  You are invited to share in this wonderful form of literature every day by reading a new post from a picture book author explaining why he/she thinks picture books are important. Each author has posted book related activities, themed calendars, curriculum ideas and stories for your child to listen to online.
Read * Share * Celebrate and have fun [every day] all month long!
