November is Picture Book Month 16

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 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
