The Children’s Book Council and Pubslush have launched the “Little Reader Snapshot” contest in honor of the 95th annual celebration of Children’s Book Week (May 12-18). From April 14th — May 18th, 2014, you are invited to submit a snapshot of your child or children reading their favorite book (group and classroom photos are welcome) on Facebook here or on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtags #LITTLEREADER and #CBW14. Show us how you celebrate the joy of reading!
Viewers will vote on their favorite photo online, and prizes — including brand-new children’s books — will be awarded to the photos with the most votes in 4 categories: Newborn to 4, 5 to 9, 10-12, and one group/classroom winner. Winning photos will be announced on May 20th.
