November is Picture Book Month!
Picture Book Month is an international literacy initiative that celebrates the print picture book during the month of November. Every day in November, there is a new post on the Picture Book Month website from a picture book champion explaining why he/she thinks picture books are important.
In last year’s celebration, Debbie Ridpath Ohi shared her insight on why picture books are important:
“Picture books are important because childhood is important. Picture books help inspire today’s young people into becoming tomorrow’s thought leaders.”
The 2015 Picture Book Month Champions are:
Jennifer Gray Olson
Anne Marie Pace
Penny Parker Klostermann
Trisha Speed Shaskan
and Paula Yoo
Join the celebration and party with a picture book!
