Today is the beginning of Children’s Book Week, which always takes place during the first full week of October. This year, for the first time in many years, Booktrust have been unable to provide all primary schools with their wonderful printed free resources due to lack of funding. This is a great loss for schools, but thankfully many of their resources can be found online here.

Have a look particularly at the wonderful Best Book Guides. The 2011 edition is available here, and will be available as a download later in the year and previous editions are also available.

This week on Library Mice will be dedicated to Children’s Book Week, looking at different perspectives of the week. I hope you will enjoy it.
