The Children’s Book Council and Every Child a Reader released the official 2014 Children’s Book Week poster.
Illustrator Robin Preiss Glasser created the poster which celebrates the 95th annual event for young readers. Glasser won the Children’s Choice Illustrator of the Year Award last year for Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet. Glasser has drawn the covers of many classic children’s books including: Eloise, Goodnight Moon, The Twits, The Purple Crayon,Call of the Wild, and Charlotte’s Web.
Every year, the Children’s Book Council tasks a talented children’s book illustrator to create an official Children’s Book Week poster. Past participants have included: Brian Selznick, Ian Falconer, Jon J Muth, Maurice Sendak, Ezra Jack Keats, Richard Scarry, Ellen Raskin, Laurent deBrunhoff, Tomie dePaola, Rosemary Wells, Garth Williams, Marc Brown, and Jerry Pinkney.
The organization will release 175,000 copies of the poster nationwide. Educators can request posters online. We’ve embedded the entire poster after the jump.
