Through Sat 5/6
With so many Americans never cracking open a book it’s important to get kids in the habit early. That’s what Children’s Book Week tries to do with more than 650 schools, libraries and bookstores across the country hosting events from May 1-7.
The theme for this year’s 98th anniversary Children’s Book Week is “One World, Many Stories,” and Loganberry Books on Larchmere will be hosting special events around that. Some events, such as Children’s Book Week Voting for the Children & Teen Choice Book Awards, or the Books and Coloring Station, will be going on all week.
On Wed 5/3 @ 6pm Lorraine Angus will help kids create their own pop-up book to take home with them. On Thu 5/4 @ 7pm, it’s Pajama Storytime when kids can wear their pajamas to the store to learn about how other animals and other people spend their days. Maybe they can even persuade mom and dad to buy them a bedtime story book.
Then on Sat 5/6 starting at 11am, there’ll be a busy day’s worth of activities for both kids and adults, such as a literary review exercise for 6-8-year olds, an origami/haiku marathon, a “Where the Books Are” tour that will help you to better use the bookstore and a “Stump the Bookseller” quiz. It’s all free!
