On November 3rd at 11:00 am, Bear Pond Books kicks off National Picture Book Month with Leda Schubert, Grace Greene, and David Martin in the Children's Room (read more here).
National Picture Book Month is not a passive declaration of our love for picture books. There's a lot to learn every day in November.
First off, check out the folks behind this celebration - they've got some great sites with resources of their own that they update throughout the year.
Every day in November you can check back to the main webpage of National Picture Book Month (picturebookmonth.com) for a new post from a Picture Book Champion (the schedule is here). For those so inclined, you can also follow their Twitter account @picturebkmonth.
What's most worth exploring on this site, though, is the extensive list of online resources for learning about picture books and engaging kids in reading. The info ranges from suggested activities to sources of book reviews to author / illustrator pages.
And when you're ready to get an actual book to read, check out our virtual display of recommended reads, with online ordering options, here.
