November is Picture Book Month!

Picture Book Month Ambassador - An owl reading a book to a mouse and squirrel

Picture books with their engaging illustrations and stories draw kids into reading. They introduce kids to story structure and new ideas. Since they are meant to be read aloud, picture books encourage social bonding and conversation. Think about your favorite picture book and you probably recall a sharing experience.

Celebrate picture books this month!
