International Children’s Book Day

April 2

Sponsored by the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY), International Children’s Book Day (ICBD) is celebrated annually on 2 April to inspire a love of reading and to call attention to children’s books.

Each year a different National Section of IBBY has the opportunity to be the international sponsor of ICBD. It decides upon a theme and invites a prominent author from the host country to write a message to the children of the world and a well-known illustrator to design a poster.

Visit the IBBY website for more information.
