IBBY Cambodia has organized the International Children’s Books Day in Cambodia every year for the past five years. This is a public event for children, young people, parents, and teachers. Our aim is to bring children and books together through helping teachers and parents animate activities around children books, raising awareness among parents on the importance of reading to children, and to excite children with the pleasure of reading.  Admission is free.

Please come join us on March 25th to celebrate. Our theme this year is “Wildlife”.
