Children’s Books for National Library Week

National Library Week is this week (from April 12 – 18, 2015), with a special celebration of Teen Literature Day on Thursday April 16, 2015.


At Wrapped in Foil blog we have eight great children’s books to get children excited about libraries. We have a mix of nonfiction and historical fiction based on true stories. For example:
