Children’s Book Week (CBW), the longest-running national literacy celebration commemorates 101 years of books for children and teens. There have been children’s stories and folklore passed down in the oral tradition since the dawn of speaking man. However, it is only in the 18th century that John Newbery, the “Father of Children’s Literature,” as an English publisher, created a profitable market for children’s books. The annual American Library Association Newbery Award was established in 1922, in his honor, to recognize authors of the most distinguished contributions to American literature for children.
