November is Picture Book Month

Last year, an international literacy initiative that celebrates the print picture book was launched by author/storyteller Dianne de Las Casas.  She felt that she needed to do something in response to an article published in the New York Times that said picture books were on their way out (Let’s hope not!).  Because of this initiative, November has been chosen as Picture Book Month and is now celebrated around the Globe. Be sure to visit their website,, to read some very interesting articles by famous authors and other picture book champions on "Why Picture Books Are Important".

To join in this celebration, the Children’s Room staff has updated their list and created a new brochure for  “Picture Books Every Child Should Know”.  Pick up your copy in the Children’s Room or download a copy click here
