International Children’s Book Day

Today, 2 April, is International Children’s Book Day! Hurray!

For the International Book Board for Young People (or, IBBY for short), this year’s event is sponsored the Mexico National Section. The title is ‘Once upon a time, there was a story that the whole world told.’

In honour of inspiring ‘a love of reading and to call attention to children’s books’, I’ve made a my own quick list of 5 awesome picture books.

  • A Chair for My Mother by Vera B. Williams
  • Queen Munch and Queen Nibble by Carol Ann Duffy and Lydia Monks
  • The Legend of the Indian Paintbrush retold and illustrated by Tomie dePaola
  • Alexander and the Horrible, Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst
  • The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith
