Literacy Day Books

International Literacy Day is a worldwide event that takes place on its designated day— September 8 of each year. It is one well-thought-out event, created by UNESCO in 1967 to promote literacy and inculcate the value of education and reading among communities and individuals. 

Whilst there are several things one can do to support the cause and promote global literacy; we at, Books2Door, believe our efforts must start at home with literacy day books. That’s precisely why we have curated a list of books we think will make an impact and help you teach the importance of education and reading to your kids.

Also, we promise you, snuggling in with a good book with your children before bedtime will make for some of your most memorable times with your kids once they are all grown up. So go on and grab these books to read with your kid, whilst also teaching them the importance of literacy day…

The twenty-four seasonal chapters of the book allow the excitement to build as parents and grandparents can share pages of unforgettable adventures, festive traditions, tales of elves, snowmen, and reindeer, fairy tales, folklore, and family fun. Alongside charming, but often edgy, contemporary voices—this treasure trove of stories is brought to life by an equally beautiful selection of illustrations from the collections of the Library and the artwork of some of the great modern book illustrators.
