Celebrate Picture Books!

What was your favorite picture book growing up? Hands down, mine was The Very Quiet Cricket by Eric Carle.  Not only were Carle's illustrations original and brightly colored, but he added noises to his beautiful story of the cricket who just wanted to make music like his friends!

November is National Picture Book Month, and Arapahoe Libraries is interested in making sure you find the best picture books for your family, that we stay on top of the newest and greatest picture books, and that we get recently arrived items back on the shelves as quickly as we can so everything has a chance to check them out!

Check out the national website for more information. And enjoy this short video National Picture Book Month as created to show just how important picture books are!

If you're an educator, there is even a Teacher's Guide for free!

If you have any questions, anything at all, about picture books—from levels to themes to bestsellers—please find a staff member at your library!
