Anita Silvey's Children's Book-A-Day Almanac

Dear Professors and Instructors of Children's Literature, 

I am thankful every day for Anita Silvey's Children's Book-A-Day Almanac. It is an informative and fun resource that celebrates the best children's books. Anita's vast knowledge, charming writing style, and love for the subject will inspire your students to be well-read educators/librarians/parents/aunts/uncles who celebrate children's books every single day. I think Anita's essays will motivate them to host celebrations on National Pig Day (March 1), International Primate Day (September 1), Moldy Cheese Day (October 9), World Origami Days (October 24-November 11), and Jerry Pinkney's birthday (December 22).  

Please tell your students about this valuable resource. Maybe you'll even add it to your course syllabus or post a link to it on the classroom discussion board. I know I would never forget the professor/instructor who introduced me to Anita's useful and inspiring almanac. 

Happy reading! 

-John Schu
