May 13-19 is Children’s Book Week! Celebrate this great annual event by picking up your copy of this year’s One Book 4 Colorado book for a 4-year-old in your life!
Established in 1919, Children’s Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year, commemorative events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes — wherever young readers and books connect! Children’s Book Week is administered by Every Child A Reader, a literacy organization dedicated to instilling a lifelong love of reading in children. The Children’s Book Council, the national non-profit trade association for children’s book publishers, is an anchor sponsor.
Each year, the Children’s Book Council enlists beloved children’s literature illustrators to design the commemorative Children’s Book Week Poster and Bookmark. Artist Brian Selznick created this year’s poster, pictured above. You can download the 2013 Book Week bookmark, complete with a fun activity, by artist Grace Lin!
We are pleased to celebrate Children’s Book Week in Colorado through One Book 4 Colorado.
