Like every year, this year, on the 2nd of April, the birthday of the great Danish narrator, Hans Christian Andersen (April 2, 1805), is celebrated the World Children’s Book Day.
The Greek Children’s Book Circle, which is the Greek section of IBBY, collaborates with the National Book Center and with the Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs in order to share the message of the Organization in schools and libraries.

This year’s poster comes from Lithuania, and this is the message that accompanies it:
