Children's Book Week is the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading.
Established in 1919, Children's Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year, commemorative events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes -- wherever young readers and books connect!
Children's Book Week features events and activities hosted in at least 50 cities across America, such as story times, illustration exhibits, teen bookfests, and author readings. Go to the official events page for a lengthy listing of the Children's Book Week festivities nearest you.
There is also the Children's Choice Book Awards Gala on May 13th at the Liberty Theatre in NYC. These are the only national book awards where winning titles are selected by young readers of all ages!
