Happy International Children's Book Day!

Since 1967, on or around Hans Christian Andersen’s birthday, 2 April, International Children’s Book Day (ICBD) is celebrated to inspire a love of reading and to call attention to children’s books.

Today might be a good day to visit or take another look at the International Children’s Digital Library on the web. It’s a great resource that deserves your attention and use. Make sure to take a look at their book database search interface.

Finally, the International Children’s Digital Library is available to mobile users with apps for iPhone (free) and iPad (free).
