My updated January 2014 Calendar of Children's Books is now online. It includes the birthdays of more than a dozen authors/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, including Chinese New Year on January 31. Some of the January 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.
