It's Children's Book Week! This year, the ever-excellent Humble Bundle has teamed with our friends at the Children's Book Council to bring some of today's best children's comics to kids, in an effort to spur excitement in reading. For the next six days, the Humble Kids Comics Bundle Supporting Children’s Book Week is up at Humble Bundle's website, where readers of all ages can pay what they like for a vast variety of some of the best the children's comics world has to offer. See below for the full press release, and click here to head to the bundle!  
Concord, CA - On the first Saturday in May, over 2,300 comic book shops in 60-plus countries gave away more than 56 million comic books to celebrate Free Comic Book Day. If you are still unaware of Free Comic Book Day, it is the only holiday that celebrates reading and reading literacy (very heady stuff for an English teacher). FCBD was created by Joe Field, owner of the Eisner Spirit Award-winning Flying Colors Comics --- and what better place to celebrate FCBD than at its birthplace!
