As you may not know, Picture Book Month tragically lost her founder, Dianne de Las Casas as a result of a house fire recently. To keep her legacy alive, fellow founders, Marcie Colleen, Joyce Wan, Katie Davis, Wendy Martin, and myself along with the help of programmer Zarah Gagatiga are keeping Picture Book Month going. We can't think of a better way to honor our friend.
So, this year, Picture Book Month kicks off with a letter, a tribute from the founders. I hope you'll have a read. But more importantly, I hope you'll use the resources we've provided all month long, to help celebrate our passion for reading and picture books! Dianne would be proud!
