Children’s Book Week is celebrated this week, May 7 through May 13. This celebration of children’s books began in 1919. According to BookWeekOnline.com “Children's Book Week originated in the belief that children's books and literacy are life-changers.” I think all of us that love and value reading would agree with that.
You can celebrate Children’s Book Week and share the wonderful world of children’s books with the children in your life with a visit to the Friends Bookstore. There is something available at the bookstore for children of every age. There are many hundreds of picture books for the youngest and for older children there are easy readers, chapter books, and books for young adults.
