Since 1967, on or around Hans Christian Andersen's birthday, April 2, International Children's Book Day (ICBD) is celebrated to inspire a love of reading and to call attention to children's books. This years theme, The Book Remembers, comes from Estonia. ICBD promotes the idea that children's books can help children learn about people from other countries, learn to appreciate and respect other cultures, and learn to get along with others. Here are some of the great books available to help you celebrate the day:
Ten little fingers and ten little toes by Mem Fox; illustrations by Helen Oxenbury

This contest is open to students in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Good luck!
I've got new pictures for you! LB just got back from an amazing trip with Marta, who works here at the library! Why was this trip so amazing? Well, first of all, LB went to Phoenix, Arizona. It's sunny there. You probably know about the Grand Canyon, right? well that's in Arizona! And they have Cactus and Grapefruit!
Secondly, LB got to try all kinds of musical instruments at a museum he visited. Makes me want to play an instrument. Maybe I'll learn to play the drums!
And then finally, and most excitingly, LB got to travel by train, car and plane on this trip! He rode the train all the way to Arizona! He told me the train has beds that are like bunk beds. You can see the picture of LB getting ready for bed in the picture up above. He also went to a special train car where you could go get food! I think that would be my favorite spot on the train! That sounds like a pretty fun way to travel. Makes me want to check out some train books right now! Maybe I will… but I'll save some for you too!
