November is picture book month and we invite readers of all ages to check out the display of picture books in Cubberley Library. Picture books are enchanting to look at, creating lifelong readers and instilling literacy skills from an early age.  There is a website dedicated to encouraging everyone to celebrate literacy at Every day in November there will be an author or illustrator explaining why they feel picture books are important. There is also an activities link to a variety of authors' and illustrators' pages. For example, Jan Brett's link is a coloring book page related to her book The mitten : a Ukrainian folktale.
