Do you know what today is?

INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S BOOK DAY!

International Children's Book Day Ibby

Thanks to my favorite Ape, and Jo Robinson for reminding me!

International Childrens Book Day

And a happy birthday to one of my favorite authors, Hans Christian Anderson. I’m sure there isn’t a parent in the world who doesn’t know The Little Mermaid. But did you know it was written in 1837? Just goes to show you good books last forever.The Little Mermaid (With Original Illustrations) by [Andersen, Hans Christian]

Of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t showcase my children’s books. I hope you’ll head over to Amazon and check mine out. While I in no way stand alongside Hans Christian Anderson, I’m very proud of my books. Easter is coming and a book makes a great gift.

Of course, you don’t have to wait for a holiday to give the gift of imagination. So, y’all give a book and light a fire of creativity in a child today. You never know who you might inspire to become the next great author.

Don’t have any little ones to gift a book? Teachers everywhere are in need of good books. There is always a place to make a reading impact. Ask around.
