The New York Times recently published an article titled Picture Books No Longer a Staple for Children. This prompted a heartfelt response from schoolchildren. Their idea; designate February as “Love a Picture Book Month.” What a wonderful idea! Here at the John Jermain Memorial Library, every month is for loving picture books!
