Children’s Book Week

Children's Book Week

Children’s Book Week is the annual celebration of children’s books and reading. Established in 1919, it is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. The program is administered by Every Child a Reader (ECAR) and the Children’s Book Council (CBC) is the anchor sponsor.

In 2013, ECAR and the CBC hosted more than 150 fun-filled official events in over 50 cities nationwide, connecting children with the creators of their favorite books.
