UnicornGoldenBook.jpgIn 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.
