Today is world book dayUNESCO declared 23rd April as world book day. It is a worldwide celebration of books and reading and celebrated in over 100 countries all over the world. This year is the 22nd year of these celebrations. The main aim of World Book Day is to encourage children to read books and providing them with a book of their own. We can't imagine a house without a book. We all should try to inculcate the habit of book reading in the younger generation.
2019 is marked as the International Year of Indigenous Languages by UNESCO. Let us all share in encouraging the children in reading and writing in their local language and let us try to donate a local language book to the children in the house and make them read so that their reading habit will grow.
A happy world book day to all.
