Picture Book Month  is an international literacy initiative celebrating the print picture book. Founded by author & storyteller Dianne de Las Casas the goal is to simply share the love of the picture book. 

In this digital age where people are predicting the coming death of print books, picture books (the print kind) need love. And the world needs picture books. There’s nothing like the physical page turn of a beautifully crafted picture book

Every day in November, there is a new post from a picture book champion explaining why he/she thinks picture books are important.

The website features tons of activities and a teacher’s guide to help celebrate.

We all know how important the picture book is to our culture. It is a necessary ingredient to raising a well-rounded child and one of the first windows to the world that we encounter.
