2 April – International Children’s Book Day
See Dick. See Dick Run. Run Dick Run. See Jane. See Jane Run After Jack. Run Jane Run. These words comprise some of the first words we ever learned to read on our own, and are recognisable to many people of many different cultures.
Along with these tales are stories of the hungry caterpillar and the stories of the strange and wonderful creatures of the world of Serendipity. Children’s Book Day celebrates these and the thousands of other books that parents have read and shared with their children to encourage literacy and stimulate the growth of their imagination.
What was your favourite story as a kid? Children’s Book Day gives you the opportunity to take it out and relive it once again.
Spread the love of reading with a child on Children’s Book Day, and help foster the imagination of the next generation.
