May is “Get Caught Reading” Month – Order posters of Celebrity Reading a Book

I want to thank Teagan R. Geneviene for reminding me May is Get Caught Reading month.

 

Get Caught Reading is a nationwide campaign to promote the fun of reading books for all ages. Launched in 1999 by the Association of American Publishers and now managed by Every Child a Reader with support from the Lois Lenski Covey Foundation, Get Caught Reading provides teachers and librarians with small posters of TV and sports stars, authors, and beloved book characters reading a book. Recent posters feature wonderful role models from recent USA Olympic teams.

Mercer Mayer is one of my favorite authors of children’s books. I read many of his books to my students and my daughter when she was young.

Celebrity Supporters Get Caught Reading!

Isn’t it cool to have this poster in a teacher’s classroom and tell the students that their author is reading a book?

 

Mercer Mayer

 

Beloved children’s book author and illustrator Mercer Mayer and Little Critter—the character he first introduced over 35 years ago and who has been featured in over 200 books—are participating in Get Caught Reading together out of a mutual desire to inspire a love of reading in people of all ages. As part of the poster campaign, in teamwork with Silver Dolphin Books, they are “caught reading” an original copy of the book Little Critter’s The Trip, celebrating the print edition’s transition into a new app. For more information, check out their website. (www.littlecritter.com).

52 Weeks of Thankfulness: Week 8 – Best Gift of Books

52-week1

This is the 52 Weeks of Thankfulness – Week 8 at Haddon Musings

Avid reader, my daughter as a young child

Books and books gabbled down like wild

Nursery Rhymes were memorized by five

Short stories, chapter books into them she dived

Wonderful world she wanted to explore, from

Beautiful images in her mind had stored

“1000 Places to See before You Die”

Takes her eagerly fly into the sky

What treasure you can give to a child

Books that take them into the “Wild”
