International Children’s Book Day is celebrated on or around April 2 each year, which happens to be the birthday of famed author Hans Christen Andersen. This day of celebration is held to celebrate the love of reading and to call attention to children’s books.

Each year, a different international section of the International Board on Books For Young People (IBBY) picks the theme to celebrate and creates many reading lists and activities for all children and their family caregivers to enjoy.

Brandt Ensor is the assistant director of the Adams County Library System.
