World Book Day, a UNESCO initiative that celebrates both books and reading, especially among younger members of our communities, is celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide. National book tokens are sent in UK and Ireland, allowing children to find a book of their own to unlock their mind’s power in a way that does not compensate for the increasing frequency of digital screens.
World Book Day, also known as World Book and Copyright Day, or International Day of the Book, is an annual event organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to promote reading, publishing, and copyright. First celebrated World Book Day on April 23, 1995, the World Book Day continues on that day. A similar event is observed in March in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
The idea original was to pay homage to Miguel de Cervantes, author Vicente Clavel Andrés, first on 7 October, his date and his date of birth, and then on 23 April.
On the 23rd anniversary of the World Book Day children of all ages gather to enjoy reading in 5 March 2020. Really loud and extremely happy. The main goal of the World Book Day in Great Britain and Ireland is to encourage children to discover and read book pleasures by giving them the opportunity to own their own books.
