Today, as every year on the 2nd of April since 1967, the International Children’s Book Day (ICBD) is celebrated. The day is observed on or around Hans Christian Andersen’s birthday and many events and activities take place to promote children’s literature and love of reading!

In DIA-drasis program we enjoy reading books and do activities based on fairy tales and other children’s stories…



Let’s take a look of some of our favorite activities…
