It is sponsored by the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY). According to the IBBY Web site, “International Children’s Book Day (ICBD) is celebrated to inspire a love of reading and to call attention to children’s books.”

Each year, one of the 70 National Sections of the IBBY around the world serves as the international sponsor of ICBD. It selects the theme and oversees the development of promotional materials for ICBD. The materials are then used to promote reading and children’s books. Often, schools and libraries hold events in conjunction with International Children’s Book Day.

When : Always April 2nd

International Children’s Book Day encourages reading, and promotes the love of books for children. The best and fastest way to develop our young children into intelligent human beings is by teaching them to read. Instilling a love of reading promotes a lifetime of learning and enjoyment.

Libraries celebrate today with story telling hours and other events for young children. You can celebrate today by giving a new book to each of your kids. If they are too young to read, spend time reading stories to them. Its a great and memorable bonding time for you and your child.


Origin of “International Children’s Book Day”:

The International Board on Books for Youth designated April 2nd as International Children’s Book Day. It marks the birthday of Danish storyteller Hans Christian Andersen(1805).
