International Children's Book Day / Hans Christian Anderson's Birthday

April 2nd is Hans Christian Anderson's Birthday, therefore it's only fitting that it also happens to be the date of International Children's Book Day this year.

Each year a theme is chosen and a prominent author writes a message to the children of the world. These materials are used in different ways to promote books and reading for children internationally. Activities include writing competitions, announcements of book awards and events with authors of children's literature.

The sponsor for this year's ICBD is the Mexico branch of the International Board on Books for Young People. IBBYP Mexico chose the them "Once upon a time, there was a story that the whole world told". Artist Juan Gedovius created a gorgeous poster for the event.
