My updated 2013 January Calendar of Children's Books is now online. It includes the birthdays of more than a dozen author/illustrators of children's books, plus seasonal books and books for Amelia Earhart Day, Martin Luther King Day, the 100th day of school and more. Some of the birthdays include those of J.R.R. Tolkien, author of The Hobbit, Julius B. Lester, author of John Henry, and Bryan Collier, illustrator of Martin's Big Words.
