Children’s Book Week celebrations will be held at bookstores, libraries, and schools across the country April 29-May 5.
Children’s Book Week (CBW) is the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading. It originated in the belief that children’s books and literacy are life-changers. 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of CBW. The 100th Anniversary theme — Read Now ∙ Read Forever – looks to the past, present, and most important, the future of children’s books.
Teachers and parents are encouraged to celebrate this week with their own events and self-made projects to help boost the pleasure in reading among young readers. Learn more about this year’s celebration and see what events will be held nationwide and happening in your area.
The celebration lasts all year long.
Look for another dedicated week in the fall, November 4-10!
