The Children’s Book Council has revealed the slogan for Children’s Book Week: Reading is a Superpower. We also learned who will design the posters for this year’s May 3-9 event: illustrator Bryan Collier. Even better? Parents. teachers, librarians, and booksellers who pledge to participate in the Book Week are eligible to receive free posters.
During Book Week, kids of all ages will be invited to complete activities designed to help them discover their superpower. Materials will include a certificate and badge, some superpower examples from beloved book creators, and themed booklists. Kids who complete activities and decide on their superpower will be added to an interactive map (COPPA compliant).
All materials will be available in March.
Collier will reveal the poster design in March; in the meantime, sign this participation pledge to receive your free posters.
The Children’s Book Council is the nonprofit trade association of children’s book publishers in North America, dedicated to supporting the industry and promoting children’s books and reading.
