Happy Children’s Book Week

Today marks 100 years and counting for Children’s Book Week.

In the past decade, diversity has been one of the strongest themes in the children’s publishing category. And that’s essential, because the multicultural future arrived long ago.

It’s taken time to reach both inside and outside the children’s book category, but we now have artists, illustrators, authors, designers, editors and production staff who humanize children’s publishing from the ground up.

Today, I’m grateful that books don’t merely reach my five grandsons, but connect with them in relevant ways. The best way to celebrate the next 100 years is by sharing a book with a child today!
