This week is Children's Book Week, and to help celebrate, Peachtree Publishers sent me five wonderful children's books that arrived today!!
I decided to research how Children's Book Week began, so I found my way over to the official site of Children's Book Week. According to the site, Children's Book Week has been celebrated since 1919 in schools, libraries, stores, homes and clubs. . . anywhere that children's books can be found, and it all started with Franklin K. Matthiews, the librarian of the Boy Scouts of America. To read more, visit the history here.
Over the next few days I will be sharing five books with you (all from Peachtree Publishers):
I Can Do It Myself! written by Diane Adams, Illustrated by Nancy Hayashi
Kiss! Kiss! Yuck! Yuck! written by Kyle Mewburn, Illustrated by Ali Teo and John Reilly
The Last Castaways written and illustrated by Harry Horse
Monsoon Afternoon written by Kashmira Sheth, Illustrated by Yoshiko Jaeggi
A Tree for Emmy written by Mary Ann Rodman, Illustrated by Tatjana Mai-Wyss
Visit often as I'm going to try to get all of these books posted this week!
