Children’s Book Week

I couldn’t let it go past without mentioning that it’s Children’s Book Week this week. For me it’s pretty much always Children’s Book Week, to the extent that last week I thought I should probably read a grown up book, you know, to fit in with cohort, but upon remembering it was the best week of the year I have rapidly and far too happily swapped my copy of The Great Gatsby with John Green’s Paper Towns and Oliver Jeffers’ newest title This Moose Belongs to Me. I’m endeavouring to read a picture book a day, every day, either over my breakfast or with tea after dinner – who’s with me?! If you haven’t picked up a Children’s book in a while, do it, and use this week as an excuse to delve into the pages of artfully constructed stories with imagination, heart and hope.

Booktrust have an excellent Best Book Guide to help you make your Children’s Book Week choices. Let me know if you read any delights!

    It’s strange that Children’s Book Week and Banned Book Week are the same week. Ironic, I think. : )
