This spring the motto of Latvian children's literature lovers is "The small is big in a book", the statement that is included in the title of the message by the well-known Latvian poetess Inese Zandere dedicated to the International Children's Books Day. This was also the title of the international conference, which took place on March 19, 2018 in the National Library of Latvia.
