In case this isn’t already marked on your calendar, today we honor one of the most fabulous of mythical creatures: the unicorn. You may be thinking only small children love unicorns. But you would be wrong. The unicorn is the national animal of Scotland and you will find them pictured on everything from wine glasses to backpacks. I keep remembering the scene in the movie Dodgeball when one of the characters is revealed to be a secret unicorn collector of epic proportion–for those who can relate, today is your day.
Below are ten books to celebrate National Unicorn Day at any age.
The official handbook about all things unicorn. Where to find them, the powers they possess, what unicorns like to eat, and how to care for them should you be so lucky as to find one (and befriend it). Gorgeous illustrations and text perfect for older readers.
