International Children's Book Day

International Children’s Book Day

Happy International Children’s Book Day! International Children’s Book Day was created to inspire and encourage children to pick up a book and read.

Nowadays, children are more focused on what is going on online so today is the perfect opportunity to unplug them from their devices and give them a book.

There are a handful of authors from New Jersey so hand your child a book from a New Jersey author. Some notable children’s authors from New Jersey are Judy Blume, Lauren T. Barnes, Robert J. Blake and Daryl Cobb.

Happy International Children’s Book Day! Enjoy reading today and everyday.
