This week, young readers from coast to coast will unite in celebrating the longest-running literacy initiative in the nation: Children’s Book Week. For the first time ever, official events are being held in all 50 states! In addition, classrooms, libraries, and booksellers across the nation will commemorate this important literary holiday with readings and activities.

Check out the free resources on the Children’s Book Week website, and don’t forget to tune into the live results from the Children’s Choice Book Awards Gala on Wednesday, May 14. Chosen by children, the winning books represent the best-loved children’s books in the nation today.

We hope you and your students enjoy the festivities this week!
