Picture Book Month 2016

by Dianne on July 26, 2016



We are excited about this year’s Picture Book Month! I wanted to give you a status update because I am receiving emails inquiring about when the 2016 Picture Book Month Champions will be announced and when the new calendar will go up. We are working on it diligently and will have everything up, hopefully, by September 1, 2016.

Exciting news… We are now an official celebration! We have been listed in Richard Chase’s Calendar of Events. We also have a new partner, Kidlit TV.


We are looking forward to an amazing year! Thank you so much for your support!

Dianne, That’s awesome! Congratulations on becoming official! I love Picture Book Month! This November I’m holding a special event at my library for PBM. My plan is to walk kids through the process of reviewing a picture book. Then we’ll print their reviews in the Library’s newsletter. And I’m taking advantage of the great resources you have on this site–posters, bookmarks, the 3-sided standee, and most especially, the PBM certificates, to promote the event and PBM!

This is fantastic! As a literacy coach, reading specialist, and writer of picture books, this combines three of my greatest loves! Kudos to Dianne and all of the other wonderful collaborators who have made Picture Book Month a reality! I will be sharing lots of ideas for integrating picture book study and celebration with my teachers this month and using them for inspiration with my Young Writers’ Society. Thanks so much!
