This week is Children’s Book Week, which has been celebrated the week before Thanksgiving in schools in libraries for more than 80 years.

In honor of Children’s Book Week, may I suggest a few of my favorites?

  • The Phantom Tollbooth, by Norton Juster, in Crumb Library at Juv. PZ 8.J98 PH
  • The Little House books, by Laura Ingalls Wilder, in Crumb Library at Juv. PZ7.W6461 Li2
  • The His Dark Materials trilogy by Phillip Pullman, in Crumb Library at Juv. PZ7.P968 Go 1996
  • Click Clack Moo, by Doreen Cronin, in Crumb Library at Juv. PZ7.C88135 Cl 2000

You can search for your favorite kids’ books easily in BearCat by choosing “Juvenile” in the drop-down “Change Collection” box. (No boring grown-up book results in those searches!)

“Book Week brings us together to talk about books and reading and, out of our knowledge and love of books, to put the cause of children’s reading squarely before the whole community and, community by community, across the whole nation. For a great nation is a reading nation.”
