What went on around the U.S. in this (still mostly) virtual ICBD season?
As Illinois State Ambassador, Linda Wessels, describes,
In celebration of International Children's Book Day, Children's Services staff at Champaign (IL) Public Library collaborated on a Facebook Live world tour of children's books and songs. Each video segment was preceded by a geographic orientation to the book or song's origin. The 38-minute program for families of preschool- and school-aged kids can be viewed at https://bit.ly/3vukmVi. In-person library visitors enjoyed a display of recent USBBY Outstanding International Books.
North Carolina State Ambassador, Elizabeth Swaggerty, via Zoom, sponsored jointly by the North Carolina Reading Association and the Tar River Reading Council, introduced USBBY and highlighted 9 books. See the extraordianry presentation here!
