March is National Reading Month

The Children’s Book Council team is always reading and we’re always up for sharing the interesting books some of us love to dive into. Some are recent finds while others are tried-and-true favorite rereads, and whether we read them as print books, ebooks, or audiobooks, we always find time for stories. Join us in celebrating National Reading Month and let us know on social media what you’re reading this March!
