Two common motives for reading a book are:

one that you enjoy it; the other, that you can boast about it.

This week, we have the perfect chance to celebrate our great unspoken hero: THE BOOK

Yes.. happy world book day everyone!

Years back.. there was one question put forward to an author..“what’s your favorite thing about being an author?”

The author replied, first, the process of creating an exciting, magical story which inspires and entertains and secondly, sharing that story with children.

It is good to write a good story and keep it to oneself but sharing it with children, taking them on virtual adventures and making them laugh is what that matters.

UNESCO chose 23rd April as World Book Day to pay a worldwide tribute to books and their authors on this date, encouraging everyone, and in particular young people, to discover the pleasure of reading, since 23 April 1616 was the date of death of Shakespeare and other prominent authors.

It is a tradition for people to exchange books and sharing the happiness of reading.

Make this a special day for your child by reading or gifting him/her a wonderful book which they will cherish for life.

“Be awesome! Be a book nut!”
