It's Children's Book Week all week

Don't you just love this poster! "MORE BOOKS, PLEASE!" It is funny how I just love children's books, but for some reason totally spaced that this is Children's Book Week. Well, it is all week so at least I'm not too behind. So you ask, what is Children's Book Week? Here is the low down on it.

Children's Book Week: November 13-19, 2006

"A celebration of the written word, Children's Book Week introduces young people to new authors and ideas in schools, libraries, homes and bookstores. Through Children's Book Week, the Children's Book Council (CBC) encourages young people and their caregivers to discover the complexity of the world beyond their own experience through books."

In addition - "The Children's Book Council has initiated a nationwide book donation program in honor of Children's Book Week 2006 and, in association with its members, will donate more than one hundred thousand books to charity."

Take a moment and enjoy a children's book this week and next week, or even the week after.
