Today is the last day of Children’s Book Week 2013. As I said before, for me, it is just a way of highlighting these books – like celebrating a birthday, or any other special day – but every day is a day for being you, appreciating/loving/respecting your mother, father, teacher, the veterans, freedom, and of course, reading.
I loved the poster created by Brian Selznick(my son is a big fan) and went hunting for past posters for Children’s Book Week. I collected them in my Pinterest board here. They are lovely and a work of art (each and every one of them). I have a couple of them here on my post today. I am still on the lookout for posters from many more years in between.
Today, I completed a couple more reviews to post but wanted to add my kids’ thoughts as well so will hold off on them till my Magic Monday post.
Here is an ode to children’s books using the Sunday Whirl words:
hover breath nebulous bleak timing torch crush
blazing slab touch vision

This is so simply, but also profoundly, true. A haiku of exceptional quality. I am envious!
Your haiku is divine and I share your love and enthusiasm for books!
A wonderful haiku, one to save and savour x
Books are an education; computer games mind eaters.
