Believe it or not, but April 2nd is the annual International Children’s Book Day. One of the primary locations where this holiday is celebrated (and better known) is in libraries across the country. The holiday was started in 1967 and has been going strong since then.
The holiday is devoted to honoring those great children’s books that so many kids get attached to early on in life. It’s also a holiday to encourage young kids to delve into books. Reading is an activity that for many children has gone out of style to television and video games.
This means kids are missing out on not only great stories, but a chance to improve their academic skill and ability to read and write. Exercising their imagination is as important as exercising their bodies and International Children’s Book Day is one day where you can make an effort to bring books back into kids’ lives.
On that note, here are some great quotes from some of the best children’s books and stories the world has ever seen. Hopefully they’ll give you some ideas for bringing books to children in your family or your community!
“All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.” – Peter Pan’s view of the world.
“I’ll eat you up I love you so.” a quote which reflects much of the uniqueness from Where the Wild Things Are.
