(MENAFN Press) Some of the world's top authors will be present when Atlantis, The Palm celebrates International Children's Book Day (ICBD) on Wednesday, 2 April between 10:30 am and 6:00 pm at The Lost Chambers Aquarium. Special guests include Miss Kathryn Cave, the award-winning English children's author of 'Somewhere Else, Maitha Al Khayyat, Emirati Children's author, Rashid Al Kous, General Director of Knowledge Without Border and Salha Ghabish: author of 'Dana's trip'. Other activities include face painting, arts and craft, music, storytelling, educational talks and Aquatheatre shows designed to inspire a love of reading and ocean conservation. One child enters free with each paying adult



Established in 1967, ICBD is celebrated to raise children's literacy rates. It is managed by The UAE Board of Books for Young People (UAEBBY) and was officially established by Sheikha Bodour bint Sultan Al Qasimi, UAEBBY Patron



Commenting on the vital importance of literacy, Sheikha Bodour bint Sultan Al Qasimi said: "The power of books to open doorways to understanding can never be overstated, which is why every child must have the right to become a reader. International Children's Book Day is a wonderful opportunity to not only raise awareness within the broader community of the importance of fostering a culture of reading, but also to engage with children in a fun and interactive way that encourages their love for books and reading. For this reason we are very happy to have the support of The Lost Chambers Aquarium to make reading more accessible for the UAE's children and look forward to a truly special day dedicated to the joys of reading.



The team at The Lost Chambers Aquarium aim to make the world a better place, by stimulating the minds of children and educating them about the world and its oceans. In the aquarium, children can explore touch tanks filled with starfish and pencil urchins, and horse shoe crabs, the spiders of the sea, allowing them to touch, feel and interact with sea life. Special exhibits are dedicated to different sea creatures, such as the delicate Moon Jellyfish, busy lobster and glittery anchovies “ each fascinating to watch and with a story to tell. They can explore The Lost Chambers Aquarium on their own or choose to interact with a 'Marine Educator', who shares educational facts



"Childhood is the ideal time to educate children about environmental issues and to broaden their understanding of the world and being able to read is imperative in helping broaden these horizons," says Natasha Christie, Director of The Lost Chambers Aquarium. "We need to focus on educating the children of today so we can make a difference for tomorrow.
