(Pompano Beach, FL—May 2010) The Balancing Act celebrates Children’s Book Week by featuring children’s book authors in a special week-long series. Join The Balancing Act along with The Children’s Book Council as the special series kicks off Monday, May 10th – airing every day through Friday, May 14th at 7:00am (ET/PT) on Lifetime Television.

Children’s Book Week is the longest running national literacy initiative in the country, and The Children’s Book Council (CBC) has been a main sponsor since 1945.

In our week-long series The Balancing Act spotlights children’s book authors Johnette Downing, Barbara Bottner, Carol Nevius, Jon Scieszka, and Josephine Nobisso. Each author talks about the importance and the magic of children’s books and reading, as well as introducing one of their own books to our viewers.

At the Children’s Book Council, they believe in order to foster a true love of reading, we need to expand the definition of what counts as reading. If children want to read a book online, or a graphic novel, or even a cereal box, it’s because that’s what interests them most -- and we need to encourage them.
Reading is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, and reading with your child is one of the greatest gifts either one of you will ever give -- or receive.
