Indigenous Peoples’ Day 2022 – Posters
Indigenous Peoples’ Day is October 10th, 2022, and we have 3 new posters celebrating this day
The Children’s Book Council is proud to have in its membership publishers of all sizes who publish children’s books by native voices, from Native Voices Publishers to the Heartdrum imprint at HarperCollins, and more.
The Get Caught Reading program makes posters available to classrooms, libraries, and bookstores where kids can see book lovers across several generations having fun reading. We’ve recently added three new posters:
