2: The History of IBBY | Believing that books have the power to build bridges across cultures and peoples, Jenna Lepman created IBBY in an attempt to bring children together through books. She was convinced that after the war, German children needed more than just food, clothing, shelter, and medicine. Good books from around the world would enrich the lives of children everywhere. | IBBY was founded in Zurich, Switzerland in 1953. Today, it is composed of 72 National Sections all over the world. | "IBBY's policies and programmes are determined by its Executive Committee: ten people from different countries and a President, elected biennially by the National Sections at a General Assembly during the IBBY Congresses. They work on a voluntary basis. The daily management of IBBY's affairs is conducted from its Secretariat in Basel, Switzerland" (IBBY, 2010).

3: IBBY seeks to promote its philosophy, the Right of Every Child to Become a Reader by improving children’s access to books, increasing the quality of children’s literacy, and promoting the development and publishing of quality children’s literature throughout the world. | “ . . . reading and books can save lives. They can change lives. They can give children in the most desperate circumstances a way to begin to live again and to understand what has happened to them. IBBY believes that every child, rich or poor, safe or in danger, with a home or without, has the right to become a reader. This has been IBBY’s continuous message" (IBBY, 2010).

4: "To promote international understanding through children's books To give children everywhere the opportunity to have access to books with high literary and artistic standards To encourage the publication and distribution of quality children's books especially in developing countries | Mission
