Celebrate Picture Book Month with ICPL!

Celebrate Picture Book Month with ICPL this November!


Picture Book Month is an international literacy initiative celebrating the printed picture book. This month we have a special calendar to share with you highlighting both the importance of reading picture books and asking our community to ReadWoke with us.


This list of 30 titles has been curated by ICPL Children’s Department staff to include books featuring diverse characters published within the last year. Each of these titles also has at least one creator who shares a diverse identity with a character found within. And all will count toward our ongoing ReadWoke reading challenge.  


In addition to this calendar, ICPL will be posting photos of staff members with their favorite picture books throughout the month. And to show how thankful we are for our community, ICPL will be giving out two $25 Prairie Lights gift cards to ReadWoke finishers at the end of November, and again in December. Happy reading, Iowa City!
