In honor of World Book Day — April 23, 2015 — the International Publishers Association has created an infographic on how reading positively affects children.
Started by UNESCO in 1995, World Book Day is “a world-wide tribute to books and authors on this date, encouraging everyone, and in particular young people, to discover the pleasure of reading and gain a renewed respect for the irreplaceable contributions of those, who have furthered the social and cultural progress of humanity.”
