Today is the first day of November…Happy November!
BUT it also means it’s National Picture Book Month. Last year Picture Book Month founder Dianne de Las Casas started this celebration to honor picture books and the people who create them.
Every day during the month of November, there is a new post from a picture book author or illustrator explaining why he/she thinks picture books are important. For us it’s time to remember and celebrate some of our favorite picture books on our book shelves and learn of some new ones to explore. Here’s the calendar for this year’s picture book celebration. See anyone you just love ?
Here’s a list of the 2012 Picture Book Month Champions. Here they are in alphabetical order. All authors/illustrators are from the United States unless otherwise noted
Along with some great writer’s and illustrators there is wonderful and incredible book bling. Can’t have enough of that.
