Children's Book Week| Story Time and Craft for Kids
As the longest-running national celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading, over 700 schools, libraries, and bookstores will host official Children’s Book Week events between April 30 - May 6 from coast to coast in all 50 states.
This May marks the 99th anniversary of Children’s Book Week; the theme for this year’s celebration is “One World, Many Stories.”
Voting for the 11th Annual Children’s & Teen Choice Book Awards, the only book award voted on solely by kids & teens, has been in progress since March 1, and many locations will hold group voting in the class, store, or library from April 30 - May 6, when voting ends.
We are proud to be hosting the following event in celebration of Children’s Book Week:
· The Bookstore Plus
· 4:00 PM
· Story Time Event: “One World, Many Stories” Theme. We will be reading “The Big Umbrella”, By Amy Barrett Bates, “They Say Blue”, By Jillian Tamaki followed by a craft.
All kids and teens will receive a free, exclusive 2018 Children’s Book, Week activity poster designed by Jillian Tamaki (while supplies last), as well as have access online at Every Child a Reader to original bookmarks created by four of today’s most innovative children’s book illustrators, and an original middle-grade “One World, Many Stories” graphic novel.
