International Day of the Book ( 23rd April )

This date was organized by UNESCO to promote reading, publishing and copyright. The Day was first celebrated in 1995.

Teachers have a very important role. We know how difficult it is to get students to read their textbooks. Getting them to read books just for the pleasure of reading is harder, since many kids aren't interested in reading these days.
When there was no televisions or computers, reading was a primary leisure activity.

Children who read a lot are more creative and get higher marks at school.
