Happy Children's Book Week! I hope you have a magnificent week celebrating children's books and reading.
The creative staff at the Children's Book Council invited authors and illustrators to celebrate Children's Book Week by filming short video messages. I recommend setting aside the next 20 minutes to hear what Jarrett Krosoczka, Tracy Ludwig, Jeff Kinney, Jonathan Auxier, Jon Scieszka, Liesl Shurtliff, Cat Winters, and more have to say about Children's Book Week. Happy watching!
