Election Day is coming up on November 6th! While your students may be too young to participate, it’s never too early to start learning about the history of democracy in the United States, or the importance of the vote. Here are 7 picture books that help teach young readers about everything from how we vote and why, to the responsibilities of the President.
As you put together your schedule for ALA, don’t forget to add in a stop or two (ten!) at the Disney Books booth to meet with your favorite (or soon to be favorite) authors, and get a sneak peek at our exciting fall list! We can’t wait to see you in the Big Easy.
We’re back from another fantastic ALA Midwinter where over 5,000 librarians and industry professionals gathered February 9-12, 2018 in Denver, CO. Our booth featured current and upcoming titles, highlighting our multiple starred reviews and end of year lists. While our Bruce tote bags were once again a hit! And for the first time, we featured an Elephant & Piggie spinner rack, raffled off to one lucky attendee for their school or library!
Throughout the year, the AAP hosts publisher book buzzes with libraries across the country. On Thursday, February 8, DPW participated in this joint book buzz with the Denver Public Library. Close to 80 local librarians attended, and we highlighted some of our big Spring/Summer 2018 titles.
At every ALA Midwinter, DPW staff takes the stage to read excerpts from upcoming DPW titles for our Librarian friends . This year we had a special guest, author Minh Lê, reading his book Drawn Together. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when he was done!
Big congratulations to all the authors, and publishers who took home this year’s Youth Media Awards, and a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who came by our booth during the show. We had a blast in Denver this year and can’t wait to do it again soon.
