Yay! It’s Children’s Book Week! What could be better than a whole week devoted to children’s books? To quote the Children’s Book Council:
- “A celebration of the written word, Children’s Book Week introduces young people to new authors and ideas in schools, libraries, homes and bookstores. Through Children’s Book Week, the Children’s Book Council encourages young people and their caregivers to discover the complexity of the world beyond their own experience through books.”
So, to discover something about the world beyond my own experience, I’m currently reading ONE CRAZY SUMMER by Rita Williams-Garcia about three girls going to spend the summer of 1968 with their estranged mom in Oakland, CA — in the heart of the Black Panther movement. It’s excellent!!
