World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, of illustrators, of books and of reading.
This is the 15th year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 1st March children of all ages (as well as libraries, schools, charities, bookshops, newspapers, people on TV, families and bloggers . . .) will come together to say a big YAY! for reading.
Millions of book vouchers are given out to to children and young people on the day (more than 14 million)They can take their voucher to a bookshop and can use them to pick one of eight (exclusive, new and completely free) books. Or, if they’d rather, they can use it to get £1 off any book that costs over £2.99.
There will be loads of small events and there is a huge online book festival taking place on the day Head to the biggest book show on earth
I plan to go into my daughters class and facilitate a book swap between the children. What do you plan to do?
