Happy International Children’s Book Day everyone

Why is International Children’s Book Day today and not next week? Cuz it celebrates someone very influential to children’s literature.

Who?  Hans Christian Andersen. Today is his birthday!.  Or, it would be his birthday if he were still around, which would just be creepy!

What can you do about it?  Celebrate!

How? By buying a child a book!

Where?  Anywhere in the world!

****If you don’t have a child, you can buy a friend’s child a book.  Or, buy a local school a book if you don’t know anyone with kids (your local independent bookstore would be happy to give you recommendations).

****Or, if you don’t have any money, you can read a child a book…
