Did you know that November is Picture Book Month? Picture Book Month is the celebration of the print picture book during the digital age. Picture books are wonderfully crafted and illustrated books made for sharing, telling, and re-telling stories.
For children, picture books help shape their childhood. They create a world where a child can dream, imagine, and invent. They teach a child that the world around them can be a colorful and unusual place where new adventures are around the corner.
Picture books are not only for children, but also for adults. They are there when we only have a few minutes for a story, or when we need to relax and get away for a few minutes. Picture books can pull you into a whole new world.
This month our staff will be sharing their favorite picture books with you on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Don’t forget to come in to the Youth Services Department to read an old favorite or to find a new one. Experience the magic of a picture book throughout November.
