Book Day

On 23 April we celebrate Book Day and Copyright Day. But do you know why? This day is the anniversary of the death of three important authors around the world: William Shakespeare, Miguel de Cervantes and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega. All of them died on 23 April 1616 (although there are some days of difference because some countries followed the Julian calendar and others the Gregorian one). That is the reason why UNESCO chose this day to encourage people to enjoy reading.

In our school we have celebrated it by inventing, reading and acting out some poems and compositions on spring time in the three languages we can speak: Spanish, English and French.

You did a really good job! I hope you had a good time . . . and I wish you will never stop reading!
