UNESCO has celebrated the power of books on World Book and Copyright Day on 23 April of every year since 1995. This special webpage offers free download of recent UNESCO e-publications and also features interviews, opinions, drawings, and many more.
Students from Sarasas Witaed Rachaphruek in Nonthaburi province, Thailand drew pictures to celebrate Bangkok as the “World Book Capital 2013” on the occasion of World Book and Copyright day on 23 April. The students also wrote messages in their drawings, mostly in Thai language, why they love books and why reading should be promoted. The students age range between 6-13 years old.
