It's Children's Book Week, And Literature Has Come A Long Way

Summer vacation isn’t that far off for many Arizona students — next week in some districts. And, while there may be no more teachers for a little while, educators are hoping the old phrase stops there, and doesn’t continue on to “no more books.”

This week is Children’s Book Week, and Linda Radke says things have come a long way since “Pat the Bunny,” and “Goodnight Moon.”

Radke is President of Chandler-based Five Star Publications, which has a kids’ division called Little Five Star.
