Children's Book Week, May 7 - 13, 2012 is the national celebration of books and reading for youth.

Established in 1919, Children's Book Week is the longest-running literacy initiative in the country. Each year, books for young people and the joy of reading are feted for a full week with author and illustrator appearances, storytelling, parties and other book-related events at schools, libraries, bookstores, museums and homes from coast to coast!

Administered by Every Child A Reader, the CBC Foundation, and sponsored by the Children's Book Council, Children's Book Week celebrates the transformative power of literacy.
