Children's Book Week May 13-19, 2013: How are you Celebrating?

Everyone here at Kids Corner For Super Reading are pretty excited about Children's Book Week that starts tomorrow, Monday May 13, 2013.  
Of course the kids (and the moms) here are always reading anyways but it is nice to have a whole week to dedicate to getting more kids out there to embrace reading and love it.  

Here is a little more about Children's Book Week and the website where you can visit for yourself.  They offer a lot of interesting ideas to get your kids more involved and you can also pick up a poster by following the directions there.  

The History of Children's Book Week 

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 is administered by Every Child A Reader, a 501(c)(3) literacy organization dedicated to instilling a lifelong love of reading in children. The Children's Book Council, the national non-profit trade association for children's book publishers, is an anchor sponsor.

Definitely visit the website,, to see all the neat and cool things going on over there.  

We plan on visiting our library this week, as well as picking some books to donate to local charities for the children to start their love of books too. 
We will also be making a list of all the books we read during this week.  

What are you doing this year for Children's Book Week?
