Here’s a snippet from the official website:
Picture Book Month is an international initiative to designate November as Picture Book Month, encouraging everyone to celebrate literacy with picture books. Founder, Dianne de Las Casas (author & storyteller) storyconnection.net, and Co-Founders, Katie Davis (author/illustrator) katiedavis.com, Elizabeth O. Dulemba (author/illustrator) http://www.dulemba.com/, Tara Lazar (author) taralazar.wordpress.com, and Wendy Martin (author/illustrator) wendymartinillustration.com, are putting together their worldwide connections to make this happen.

These ladies have put together a treasure trove of information for picture book lovers, so please share their link. Also, don't forget about PiBoIdMo. I'm up to twenty-six ideas!
And in related news...
I went shopping yesterday:
hunt for ducks, rabbits, and geese.
One little, two little, three little Wampanoag
gather nuts, berries, and squash.
Everybody has a job to do;
then it's time to celebrate!
Nancy Davis recreates the excitement and wonder of the first Thanksgiving--how the pilgrims came to America and how the Native Americans taught them to plant and then joined them in a Thanksgiving feast. Parents can use the simple text and the bright, graphic illustrations of this lift-the-flap book to introduce a very young child to this holiday.
(This one is perfect for toddlers.)
Have a great weekend!
