Effingham School Assistant Superintendent Gregg Arnsdorff read to fourth grade children at the Springfield Elementary School last Friday to celebrate National Children’s Book Week.
Celebrate Books, this year’s theme for the 86th observance of The Children’s Book Council’s National Children’s Book Week, encourages children, and the adults who care for them, to make time each day to spend with a favorite book.
Since 1919, educators, librarians, booksellers, and families have celebrated National Children’s Book Week during the week before Thanksgiving. Book Week events are held in schools, libraries, bookstores, clubs, private homes — any place where there are children and books.
