Authors, illustrators, and other lovers of children’s literature from around the world have come together once again to promote print picture books. I’m proud to be a Picture Book Month Ambassador and help promote the importance of the picture book.
You can read all about this great celebration at picturebookmonth.com. I encourage you to visit the site often throughout the month to read essays from famous authors about the magic of picture books.
…But the picture book also suggests something greater – that the world is a place we might have an actual connection to. In the arms of a parent, a child hears and touches and feels that connection through the simple gift of story. -Caldecott Honor winner, Aaron Becker
