The article reports on the dozen ideas for celebrating children's day/book day which is held annually. The event emphasizes on the importance of literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds. The Association for Library Service for Children (ALSC) continues to increase public awareness of the event in libraries throughout the country, through a series of grants from the W. K. Kellog Foundation. Among the ideas for the celebration are the fiesta on April 30, 2007, book walks, puppet shows and book parades, and convincing a bookstore to donate a family book shopping spree.
