Through reading and the celebration of World Book and Copyright Day, 23 April, we can open ourselves to others despite distance, and we can travel thanks to imagination. From April 1st to 23rd, UNESCO will share quotes, poems and messages to symbolize the power of books and encourage reading as much as possible. By creating a sense of community through the shared readings and the shared knowledge, readers around the world can connect and mutually help curb loneliness.~ UNESCO
April 23rd is the day for celebrating Canadian literature and reading. Dedicate April 23rd to reading and encourage friends and family to do so, too. Celebrate by picking a new book to read or by reading a book to a child. It is also a good occasion to find a new book series to immerse yourself in or to learn more about Canadian authors.
Canada Book Day
Canada Book Day is celebrated on the same day as World Book and Copyright Day, a yearly event organized by UNESCO to promote reading, publishing and the protection of intellectual property through copyright.
Help encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own. What was your favourite story as a kid? World Book Day encourages you to get it out and read it through again, maybe to your children or grandchildren. Celebrate the day with a great book!
