International Children’s Book Day 2020

It is International Children’s Book Day today - and so we look at the numerous efforts by authors and celebrities worldwide to read children’s books online to help families cope with the current COVID-19 pandemic. We discuss why at times like these, children’s books can go beyond simple entertainment and actually be a source of learning and comfort.
