Make Room for Reading Poster

Warm up to a good read!

One by one, curious forest creatures escape the snow by making room in Nicki’s warm mitten until a tickle and sneeze sends them all flying. This poster features artwork from Jan Brett’s classic retelling of the Ukrainian folk tale, The Mitten, and will inspire young readers to make room for reading this winter. Special thanks to Jan Brett and G.P. Putnam’s Sons, a division of Penguin Young Readers Group.


Read Creepy Tales Poster

Fall is the perfect time to read some spine-tingling tales, and no one knows this better than Jasper Rabbit, star of this READ poster. Jasper’s hare-raising adventures began with 2013’s Creepy Carrots!, written by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Peter Brown. The picture book, which followed a young rabbit and a bunch of peculiar carrots garnered Brown a Caldecott Honor and was followed by Creepy Pair of Underwear!
