International Children's Book Day

Originating in 1967, April 2nd is the day we celebrate International Children's Book Day - a day meant to inspire a love of reading and celebrate children's books all over the world. We can think of no better way to join in the celebration than to show one of Stefano Vitale's illustrations. He brings to life an author's words with his beautiful, vivid imagery. Says the publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt of Stefano Vitale's work, "The stunning art evokes the visual traditions of the tales’ varied countries of origin..."

Stefano Vitale created this image for the beloved story "Rumpelstiltskin" as retold by author Judy Sierra in her book Can You Guess My Name? Traditional Tales Around the World
