Children’s Book Month is a month-long celebration of children’s books and the joy of reading. It is celebrated every November in the United States. Children’s Book Month was founded in 1919 by the Children’s Book Council, a non-profit organization dedicated to literacy and children’s books.
The purpose of Children’s Book Month is to promote the importance of reading for children of all ages. Reading is essential for children’s development, both academically and personally. It helps them to learn new things, expand their vocabulary, and develop their imagination. Reading also helps children to relax and de-stress, and it can be a great way to bond with parents and caregivers.
During Children’s Book Month, libraries, schools, and bookstores host a variety of events to celebrate children’s books and encourage reading. These events may include author visits, storytime sessions, book clubs, and crafts. Many publishers and booksellers also offer special discounts on children’s books during Children’s Book Month.
Here are some ways to celebrate Children’s Book Month:
Visit your local library or bookstore and browse the selection of children’s books.
