Children’s Book Week (North America)

April 30, 2023 - May 7, 2023

Every year, students from the United States and Canada celebrate children’s books and the importance of reading. Each May, there are hundreds of readings given to thousands of children, teens and adults across North America in an effort to reach children in more remote regions and communities. Hundreds of schools, public libraries, bookstores and community centres host literacy events to celebrate this special week.

This year, Canada will be celebrating Children’s Book Week from April 30 – May 6 and the United States will be celebrating from May 1 – 7.

The two designated websites for Children’s Book Week are https://bookweek.ca/ (Canada) and http://everychildareader.net/cbw/ (United States).  For more information, start at one of these websites.
