Like many of you, we think the whole National This Month and National That Month thing has gotten a little out of hand. Yes, many of them are important, like Black History Month and Cancer Prevention Month (both in February), but do we really need Humorists Are Artists Month (March) and National Sandwich Month? (August). The answer is a reluctant yes, but only because we want to stay on the good side of the powerful Humorists Union and the shadowy Pastrami Lobby.
But this month, we just flat-out love because it is both oodles of fun and important to boot. November is National Picture Book Month, and Harris County Public Library encourages you to celebrate to the fullest.
