International Children's Book Day In Tehran

as reported by Tehran Times:

Members of the Iranian Children's Book Council plan to celebrate the International Children's Book Day (ICBD) during a ceremony in Tehran today.   Each year a national section of the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) has the opportunity to be the international sponsor of the ICBD.   The Mexican branch of the IBBY will sponsor this year's celebration, and Mexican artist and author Francisco Hinojosa has written a message for this occasion. The theme selected for this year's ICBD is "Once upon a time, there was a story that the whole world told".   The theme and a message sent by Hinojosa will be discussed at the ceremony, which will be held by the Iranian Children's Book Council.    The council also plans to review works of Iranian children's book illustrator Mohammad-Ali Bani-Asadi, who was nominated for the 2012 Hans Christian Andersen Awards, which are presented by the IBBY.
