November is Picture Book month!

November is Picture Book Month and it’s an international literacy initiative that celebrates printed picture books. Picture books play an important role in childhood literacy. Often they are the first book experienced by a child, and the first book that a child reads on their own. Many people have fond memories of their first introduction to picture books.


2016 marks the 6th year for Picture Book Month, which was founded in 2010. Each day in November features a different theme to read about.  Celebrate and read a picture book on, which features a different picture book each day.
