Yesterday, September 8th, was International Literacy Day which is dedicated every year to raising awareness about literacy around the world. Why is it important to recognize this date? Well, literacy plays a role in human rights, advocates confidence, and of course promotes education and advancement.
And where better than to start with ‘simple’ literature? In other words: children’s books! Apparently, Amazon offers free children's books for Kindle – which is truly a lovely idea (cause who doesn’t love a good kid’s book?). Check out the list and see if you can find anything you’d like to share with that special kid in your life! And celebrate literacy by taking the time to read it with them. Happy Literacy Day! :)
