November is Picture Book Month! Join in the fun here in the Children's Room!
This month, the children's Room is joining in an international month-long celebration of picture books:
In this digital age where people are predicting the coming death of print books, picture books (the print kind) need love. And the world needs picture books. There’s nothing like the physical page turn of a beautifully crafted picture book. - picturebookmonth.com
Join in the celebration with us by visiting picturebookmonth.com each day this month to read from authors and illustrators like Tomie dePaola, Mercer Mayer, and Rosemary Wells about why they think picture books are so important (and check out the teaser video below!). Here in the Children's Room, take our PBM reading challenge and earn a chance to win a Menasha Public Library book bag. The reading challenge is a selected list of Scholastic's top picture books - just read 15 out of 25 titles listed during the month of November and bring your booklist into the Children's Info Desk to be entered for the prize drawing.
We hope you'll join us in celebrating our love of picture books - you're never too old (or young!) to discover a new favorite!
