> The Things You Can Read: November is Picture Book Month! Come Celebrate

The Things You Can Read welcomes you and thanks you for your readership. We, here at The Things You Can Read, ask your help, if you visit our site regularly, please follow us either via email or Google Friend Connect.  Launched on June 7, 2012, our site has already attracted a great deal of attention.  One of the goals of the site is to feature reviews of Children's Picture Books, Young Adult novels and Adult Literary Fiction/Nonfiction.  A second goal for the blog is to be a resource for teachers of English and writing--with examples of student created writing, writing tips, resource links, and the opportunity to pick the brain of a seasoned English teacher.  To spice things up...every now and then, we'll also include random quotes and thoughts on education and life in general, but our ultimate goal is to reach out into the blogosphere and be a "Book Whisperer" and "Writing Whisperer" to children and adults of all ages.   Thank you for your readership.  Here is to a lifetime filled with reading and writing.

November is Picture Book Month! Come Celebrate

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a children's picture book designed, illustrated and written Eric Carle, first published by the World Publishing Company in 1969, later published by Penguin Putnam.
Did you know that November is Picture Book Month?  Well, it is, and boy, has Candlewick Press embraced this idea.  Over at Candlewick Press they have initiated a yearlong campaign entitled We Believe in Picture Books.  Their website for this is Reading Starts Here.  For 365 days the site will celebrate a picture book a day.  On Saturday, November 10 at 1:00 PM they will also be featuring, "...a book symposium featuring three illustrators who have worked successfully both on screen and in books."  Check it out.  

As if this wasn't enough, in Candlewick's recent newsletter they mention another site entitled Picture Book Month Celebration, which has a wonderful series of posts on Why Picture Books are Important.  Check this out, as well.  

Hey, what is your favorite picture book?  Let us know, here at The Things You Can Read.

Happy Picture Book Month!
