Happy International Literacy Day! Today is the 50th anniversary of this global celebration of literacy as the foundation of all learning!
To mark this special day, we're sharing our collection of favorite Mighty Girl books about reading and literacy. These books celebrate the love of reading, the value that books bring to our lives, and the incredible joy and pride that comes with learning this critical skill. Along with numerous recommendations for children and teens, we've also highlighted a number of books for parents offering tips and strategies to help foster your children's love of reading and information on how to support those children that might be struggling.
To help children and teens better understand the challenges many children around the world face in order to go to school, we've also put together a blog post featuring our favorite books for young readers on children's educational access issues: "Honoring Malala: Mighty Girl Books on Children's Fight for Education" at http://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=11621
