It's Picture Book Month!

Set down your kindle.
Power down the nook.
Head to your shelves,
pick out a picture book.

Admire the artwork,
finger the pages,
remember that books
last through the ages.

Did you know that, starting this year, November is Picture Book month? Well now you do - no excuses, turn off the e-readers and listen up! According to the events founders, "in this digital age where people are predicting the coming death of print books, picture books (the print kind) need love. And the world needs picture books. There’s nothing like the physical page turn of a beautifully crafted picture book." In the words of Smokey Robinson, I second that emotion!
