This week is Children's Book Week, an annual event celebrated nationally since 1919 in "schools, libraries, bookstores, clubs, private homes -- any place where there are children and books."
We mentioned Children's Book Week earlier this month on our blog. There are ideas for how kids and teens can celebrate Children's Book Week at the official Children's Book Week website. The third annual Children's Choice Book Awards will be held Tuesday, May 11, at Guastavino's in New York City.
How will you, your school or library celebrate Children's Book Week?
The May 2010 Issue of Guardian Angel Kids is now available at our website. With special stories, poems, games, activities and more, you'll find something to enjoy as we celebrate Friends & Neighbors.

"Heart of Gold" By Bill Kirk
"Dad, I need to do some shopping,
Now, before it gets too late.
Time’s a wastin’; let’s get hopping!
Hurry, Dad! I just can’t wait!"
Clipped the picture of the locket,
From the paper yesterday.
Better keep it in my pocket
For our shopping trip today.
Where’s that ten from Uncle Freddy,
I’ve been saving since last June?
"Got my money. Are you ready?
Let’s go, Dad! It’s almost noon!"
At the store, I knew I’d find it,
Next to lotions, soaps and stuff.
Those things smell, but I don’t mind it.
"Will ten dollars be enough?"
“Just enough,” the store clerk told us,
“For the gift you want to buy.”
In the bag, with what she sold us,
She put ribbons I could tie.
Back at home, I wrapped it neatly,
Taping every corner fold.
Inside, filled with love so sweetly,
Mom will find my heart of gold.

Children's Book Week starts May 10th. This annual celebration of children's books, reading, and storytelling has been honored nationwide since 1919.
In 1913, Franklin K. Matthiews, the librarian of the Boy Scouts of America, began touring the country to promote higher standards in children's books. It was Matthiews who suggested Children's Book Week, which would be supported by publishers, booksellers, and librarians. With the help of powerful allies, in 1916 the American Booksellers Association and the American Library Association worked with the Boy Scouts in sponsoring a Good Book Week.
The Children's Book Council was formed in 1944 and assumed responsbility for Children's Book Week, which was moved from November to May in 2008. That year, they also created the Children's Choice Book Awards.
To learn more about Children's Book Week and to view some of the events taking place locally and nationwide, please visit the Children's Book Week website.
