Twenty-five years ago, when I was having a radio interview at the University of Arizona in Tucson, I learned that Mexico celebrates a Day of the Child. I walked out into the sunlight, and I’ve joked that I was ZAPPED by the idea of initiating what became Children’s Day, Book Day. CDBD is a daily celebration of Children & Books with culminating celebrations held across the country on April 30th at libraries, schools, literacy organizations AND homes. We want and need all our children to be readers.
Join us in promoting this daily initiative that celebrates our children and reading in your family, city, state, and national organizations. Thanks to REFORMA and ALSC, my early partners.
