One of the ways you can easily up your nerd cred is to be able to celebrate every book-themed holiday throughout the year. Of course, it can be tough to do just that when you don’t know when things like Book Lovers Day or Coloring Book Day might fall. Find here your guide to all of the book holidays your heart can desire, allowing you the opportunity to celebrate fully and appropriately all year long.

Not included on this calendar are author and book specific dates. You can find many of those on the Flavorwire Literary Calendar, which has some sort of event for each and every day of the year. This calendar instead focuses on those events you see passing by on social media each year and wishing you’d known about it sooner. Note that “National,” unless otherwise noted, means United States. Of course, no one says that those outside the U.S. can’t celebrate them, too.

Note that some dates shift year-to-year.

26 Memori

What's a good way to end my letter to my teacher?

Try one of these quotes, but make sure to give credit to the person quoted.

"A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops."

--Henry Brooks Adams

"Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth."

--Helen Caldicott, author and peace activist

"The dream begins, most of the time, with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you on to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth."

--Dan Rather

"Teachers teach because they care. Teaching young people is what they do best. It requires long hours, patience, and care."

--Horace Mann

"Compassionate teachers fill a void left by working parents who aren't able to devote enough attention to their children. Teachers don't just teach; they can be vital personalities who help young people to mature, to understand the world and to understand themselves. A good education consists of much more than useful facts and marketable skills."

--Charles Platt

"The future of the world is in my classroom today, a future with the potential for good or bad... Several future presidents are learning from me today; so are the great writers of the next decades, and so are all the so-called ordinary people who will make the decisions in a democracy. I must never forget these same young people could be the thieves and murderers of the future. Only a teacher? Thank God I have a calling to the greatest profession of all! I must be vigilant every day, lest I lose one fragile opportunity to improve tomorrow."

--Ivan Welton Fitzwater

"There's no word in the language I revere more than 'teacher.' My heart sings when a kid refers to me as his teacher, and it always has. I've honored myself and the entire family of man by becoming a teacher."

--Pat Conroy, Prince of Tides

"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires."

--William Arthur Ward

"The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery."

--Mark Van Doren

"If you plan for a year, plant a seed. If for ten years, plant a tree. If for a hundred years, teach the people. When you sow a seed once, you will reap a single harvest. When you teach the people, you will reap a hundred harvests."

--Kuan Chung

"There is an old saying that the course of civilization is a race between catastrophe and education. In a democracy such as ours, we must make sure that education wins the race."

--John F. Kennedy

"Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher."

--Japanese proverb

"The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards."

--Anatole France

"Information is the currency of democracy."

--Ralph Nader

"Above all things I hope the education of the common people will be attended to; convinced that on their good sense we may rely with most security for the preservation of a due degree of liberty."

--Thomas Jefferson

"Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young."

--Henry Ford

"One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child."

--Carl Jung

"Education is light, lack of it darkness."

--Russian proverb

"Whoever first coined the phrase 'you're the wind beneath my wings' most assuredly was reflecting on the sublime influence of a very special teacher."

--Frank Trujillo

"In a completely rational society, the best of us would be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something less."

--Lee Iacocca

"Be all that you can be. Find your future--as a teacher."

--Madeline Fuchs Holzer

RBC: National Write a Letter of Appreciation Week

national write a letter of appreciation week

Lifetouch and the Illinois Principals Association invites you to celebrate National Principals Month this October which culminates with Principal Appreciation Week October 20 through the 26 and Principal Appreciation Day on October 25 in Illinois. This state-endorsed occasion honors the work and commitment of principals in schools throughout Illinois. Parents, school staff, and the community at-large are asked to perform some act(s) of appreciation to acknowledge the leadership provided by these educational leaders. Below are a number of ideas or good acts that can be performed for your principal.

2019 Principals Week/Day Proclamation

2019 National Principals Month Press Release

Contribute to the Illinois Principals Foundation

Consider making a donation to the Illinois Principals Foundation on behalf of an impactful school leader, past or present. With a one-time gift of $60 or more, we will send a special letter of appreciation to the school leader of your choice letting that person know how much you value her or his leadership. We have set a goal of $50,000 for the month, and we are fortunate to have a private benefactor making a dollar-for-dollar match up to $25,000.  Donate online now.

Write to Your Principal

Write poems, letters or notes of appreciation and leave them on the desk of your principal.

Organize a Breakfast

Order pastries, coffee and other breakfast items for your favorite administrator. Arrive early and surprise your principal with breakfast ready and waiting in the office. Get there early! They will be.

Prepare Souvenirs and Specialty Items

Print your principal’s name on coffee mugs, t-shirts, schoolbags etc. to advertise the efforts of your Principal.

Make Notes

Have your students write notes like “Well Done!” “Thank You” and “You’re Appreciated” and put them on the desk of your principal before he/she arrives at work.


Decorate the office and hallways of the school showing your appreciation for your principal.

Activities After School

Plan a reception at the end of the school day for teachers and staff to show appreciation and celebrate their principal.


Teachers can have their students send their principal thank you notes via email during computer class.

Flower Shower

Shower the principal with flowers from students and staff.

A Day to Reflect

Principals have little time for themselves while dealing with the immediate and urgent details of there job. Give them a day to unplug, get away from the building, and take time to recharge and reflect on how they can be better leaders.

Say Thank You in a fresh way

Write the phrase “Thanks for a great year!” with each letter on a separate piece of paper. Now attach the letters to the front of several students. Arrange the students in the proper order to complete the phrase. Parade through the halls or office for the principal’s viewing pleasure.

Be creative and have fun!
