Ezra Jack Keats Centenary

To honor late children's book author-illustrator Ezra Jack Keats, a 100th birthday blowout is planned throughout the month of June. And since Ezra was born in Brooklyn, many of the activities take place there, including the designation of a Prospect Park statue of Peter and Willie, two of Ezra's most beloved characters, as a Literacy Landmark. For more information, visit the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation at www.ezra-jack-keats.org. For copies of Ezra's timeless tales, visit www.bankstreetbooks.com.

Books for LGBT Pride Month

The month of June represents many things and there are many reasons to celebrate: Ramadan, graduation, Father's Day, and summer solstice among them. Another outstanding addition to this month's calendar is the acknowledgement of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month. To share the pride with young children, consider these books for young readers that open eyes and hearts to the importance of the occasion, now recognized through a presidential proclamation that intends to eliminate prejudice through understanding and respect.
