November is the 1st annual Picture Book Month!

I LOVE reading picture books. I always have. There is such incredible artwork and writing in picture books, creating satisfying stories. They make me feel good. And picture books can help children understand the world, while enriching their imagination. So I’m excited that five authors and illustrators have come together to start the first annual Picture Book Month–in November. Picture Book Month encourages adults to read picture books with children. I also think it’s a great opportunity to encourage adults to read picture books, period.

Picture Book Month, which is international, was started by Founder Dianne de Las Casas, and Co-Founders Wendy Martin (illustrator & creator of the Picture Book Month logo and designs), Katie Davis (author/illustrator), Elizabeth O. Dulemba (author/illustrator), and Tara Lazar (author).

I hope this catches on!
