Today is Perfect Picture Book Friday where I link up with Susannah Leonard Hill’s fantastic group of picture book writers, illustrators, librarians and others who contribute a picture book review and related resources for parents, teachers and children.
Some picture book points to remember:
- Having picture books available for young children to look at and listen to is almost as important as having air to breathe and food to eat.
- Set up a bookshelf for your child’s collection.
- Books can be expensive…check out used book stores and consignment shops for discounted picture books.
- The library is an amazing resource for children’s books. You can speak to the librarian about recommendations and story programs.
- Read to your child every day.
National Library Week is April 12-18. To help celebrate, visit the library with your children at least one day that week if you can…and make it a habit to go often. Does your child have a library card yet? Find out how old your child has to be…if he doesn’t have one yet and is old enough, help celebrate National Library Week by signing him up. A child’s library card is a passport to learning about the world.
In honor of National Library Week, I’m donating 5 copies of Show Me How! Build Your Child’s Self-Esteem Through Reading, Crafting and Cooking. Wouldn’t it be awesome to present a copy of this valuable parent/teacher resource to your children’s librarian? Just subscribe to my mailing list. Five names will be chosen by Random.org at the end of the month.
Many libraries are very limited in what new materials they can buy for their collections because of reduced revenues. Help your library receive a resource that will be used by parents and teachers for their kids. Just click on this link and subscribe to my mailing list. Five libraries will be winners!
