IBBY is a non-profit organisation with an official status in UNESCO and UNICEF. Its mission as as an international network is 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, to provide support and training for those involved with children and children's literature and to stimulate research and scholarly works in the field of children's literature.
IBBY also co-operates with many international organisations and children's book institutions around the world and exhibits at the International Children's Book Fair in Bologna and other international book fairs.
