Yesterday morning (May 13), the sun rose on silent wings, spreading its golden blanket across a land renewed. Renewed by what? Renewed by the fact that Children’s Book Week had descended upon us in the night.
Yes, this is Children’s Book Week (CBW), one of the longest-running literacy initiatives in the country. Established in 1919, CBW aims to instill a lifelong love of reading in young people. To learn more about Children’s Book Week, check out the Children’s Book Council’s website. Or, if you want great classroom activities that will motivate your learners to enjoy books, be sure to visit themailbox.com.
Every school year, it seems students respond to books differently than the year before. Last year’s hit turns into this year’s miss. What book have your students enjoyed the most this year? Let us know!
