November is Picture Book Month

Picture¬†Book¬†Month is an international literacy initiative that sees the month of November dedicated to picture books. Just in case you’ve neglected them this year, now is the time to make them a focus in your home.

To celebrate the month, a different author or illustrator will visit www.picturebookmonth.com each day to share their love of picture books. You can see the schedule below (click here to download a larger version). Make sure you look out for Australian picture book talents, Jackie French, Emma Quay and Bruce Whately.

In the meantime, you can read about my passion for picture books in this article I wrote about the value and worth of picture books.

  1. I love that picture books offer a totally different experience to the child and the parent. Authors and illustrators usually add a few ‘adult’ images or ideas to the book to keep everyone entertained and enthralled. Especially important if you have to read the same book five million times!
