Children's Book Week


“There is no substitute for books in the life of a child
.” -Mary Ellen Chase (1887-1973, an American educator and author)

Sharing a great children’s book with a child can be a memorable moment in his or her life, as well as one that can influence him or her to become a lifelong reader.  To celebrate children’s book week, we’re reviewing some of our favorite books for kids, as well as some of the top children’s books you can buy your child.  But first, here’s more about Children’s Book Week from the official website:

Established in 1919, Children’s Book Week is the longest-running literacy initiative in the country. Every year, author and illustrator appearances, storytelling, parties, and other book-related events are held at schools, libraries, bookstores, museums, and homes from coast to coast!  Children’s Book Week is administered by Every Child A Reader, a non-profit literacy foundation, and sponsored by the Children’s Book Council.
