International Children's Book Day

“You open the book, take in the words and the good story explodes inside you …”From a message by Margaret Mahy, Hans Christian Andersen Award Winner on International Children’s Book Day, April 2, 2007.

This celebration is sponsored by the International Board on Books for Young People. IBBY is a non-profit organization representing people from all over the world who are committed to bringing books and children together. Celebrate International Children’s Book Day by visiting their virtual exhibition, “Books for Africa, Books from Africa” Some 80+ books from all over Africa are represented here. Select a category (picture books, folk tales, etc.) and click on a jacket cover image to read a commentary about the book and see a few pages. Book titles in the exhibit are also searchable by language. See the exhibit at
