The world celebrates World Book Day today

Today is World Book Day. Each year, on the 23rd of April, celebrations take place all over the world to recognize the magical power of books - a link between the past and the future, a bridge between generations and across cultures. On this UNESCO-declared occasion, international organizations representing the three major sectors of the book industry that is: publishers, booksellers, libraries and the community at large gather to engage on matters of literature. To weigh in the world activities, the Miriam Tlali Reading and Book Club this past Saturday, hosted a discussion entitled "Parents involvement is the number one predictor of early literacy success and future academic achievement".
