Children’s Book Week is May 10-16, 2010. Children’s Book Week began in 1919 with the amazing idea that children’s lives could be changed by books. Today, the East Bay Children’s Book Project is changing children’s lives by giving out hundreds of thousands of books. Read this post to find out how you can be part of what we do by sharing a book that you loved!
When I was a kid, my life was changed by The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. A story about an only child who came home from school and was bored and had an overactive imagination – just like me! Even before the strange wild adventures started, I was hooked. By the time Milo emerged a hero, my life was transformed.
What children’s book changed your life, and why? What book does your child want you to read over and over and over again?
We’d love to have you write us a comment. But here’s an even better way to celebrate Children’s Book Week (no matter when you are reading this!) – donate a copy of that beloved book to the Children’s Book Project, so another child’s life can be changed by it.
