Happy April, everyone! Here is my first link round-up of the month.
Here’s an infographic by HarperCollins with interesting and powerful statistics demonstrating the importance of reading to young children.
This is fascinating stuff: “retro” reviews of children’s and teen’s books written by NYPL librarians. Proof that books, like everything else, go in and out of style.
Here’s an article from Albuquerque demonstrating the power of a well-placed children’s book.
BBC chose its “11 Best Children’s Books of All Time,” and some are complaining because the list includes nothing published after 1968. I think there may be good reason for including only older books, and besides, eight of the books on the list are personal favorites of mine, so I can’t complain.
I need one of these.
April 12-18 is National Library Week! I plan to celebrate all month.
To start the celebration, take a look at this video by Common Craft, explaining the real role of libraries and librarians in this era of iPhones and Google.
If you happened upon any interesting literary links this week, please do share! I hope you have a lovely weekend with plenty of time to read.
