Since 1967, International Children's Book Day has been celebrated on April 2nd, which is around author Hans Christian Andersen's birthday. The event marks a call to attention regarding children's books, and serves to foster a love of learning in children.

Each year a different National Section of IBBY has the opportunity to be the international sponsor of ICBD. It decides upon a theme and invites a prominent author from the host country to write a message to the children of the world and a well-known illustrator to design a poster.
