International Children’s Book Day

My last blog post was about World Autism Awareness Day which is on April 2nd but I forgot to mention that it is also the International Children’s Book day as well.   In fact here is a little history about it from International board for Books for Young People (IBBY) taken from their website:

“Since 1967, on or around Hans Christian Andersen’s birthday, 2 April, International Children’s Book Day (ICBD) is celebrated to inspire a love of reading and to call attention to children’s books.”

that last part….. I absolutely LOVE! Inspire a LOVE of reading!

I hope you get the chance to celebrate children’s books and also raise awareness as well come April 2nd! (two days!!!)

I also wanted to share a blog post/video by Cheryl Rainfield about writing for children:

I think it was right on! what do you think?

Remember to always BELIEVE,
