November is #PictureBook Month

Picture Book Month is an initiative to celebrate the wonders picture books offer! Every day in November their website will have a new post from a picture book champion on why they think picture books are important. Here is the calendar of participants for November 2015. Here is a wonderful little video compiling some of the previous thoughts from big names in children’s books on why picture books are important.

Their site has lots of resources such as a curriculum, suggested ways of celebrating, activities from specific authors, and printables like posters and shelftalkers. I love free resources and extra ways we can encourage families to read together! Personally I see this as a great resource for a social media push. How could you use these resources at your library?
