Now in its tenth year, Pennsylvania’s statewide initiative One Book, Every Young Child raises awareness of the importance of early literacy development in preschoolers. Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of One Book, Every Young Child with special storytimes and events during the month of April.

Put on your racing goggles and start your engines, because the 2015 selection is Number One Sam by Greg Pizzoli. In this exciting, brightly illustrated picture book, Sam, a competitive race-car driving dog who loves to be #1, learns that some things are more important than winning. From the author/illustrator of one of my favorite picture books, The Watermelon Seed, Greg Pizzoli brings another engaging story for young children to life.

If you want to get to know Sam a little better, come meet author and illustrator Greg Pizzoli at CLP – Hazelwood for a special celebration of reading that includes activities, stories and crafts on Thursday, April 23rd at 10 am.
