Children's Book-A-Day Almanac

Curated by book enthusiast, editor, and publisher Anita Silvey, Children's Book Almanac is a "daily love letter to a book or author." Reminiscent of a daily tear-away calendar, the website highlights and reviews a children's book each day of the year. In addition to the brief book review, features include an excerpt from the book and Silvey's personal thoughts on her selection, which may include "backstories of how our classics came to be." Silvey's picks are mindful of a variety of audiences. For example, graphic novel enthusiasts may enjoy her selection of Captain Underpants, while history buffs may be delighted to find Anne Frank: Her Life in Words and Pictures. Readers new to the site may want to click on the "Find a book!" box (located on the left-side panel of the site) to view archived book selections. There are plenty of ways to browse the archives, as selections are categorized by age group, subject, book type, author/illustrator, and date. The site offers much more than daily book selections — other content includes "events, trivia, and celebrations for every day of the year."
