World Book Day takes place on Thursday 3 March 2016, and we would like to invite you to join us in helping your child to make the most of this special occasion. World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children. To help get them started on their reading journey, every child will receive a £1 World Book Day Book Token that can either be exchanged for one of TEN special £1 World Book Day books or used to get £1 of any book costing £2.99 or more. You can find out more about the books at worldbookday.com/books.
Nurseries, schools and libraries across the UK celebrate World Book Day with a huge range of events and activities. Each class will be celebrating World Book Day so keep an eye out for photos of the day on the year group blogs.
You can join us in building your child’s enthusiasm for books well beyond World Book Day by reading together regularly and joining your local library if you are not yet members. For more information about World Book Day and ideas on sharing books at home, visit worldbookday.com. Children are never too young to start their journey with books, and the benefits of reading are enormous—so we hope, like us, you will use World Book Day to celebrate it with your child.
As part of the world book day celebrations we will be dressing up as book characters for the day – this is just for fun and no donations are being taken for this event. We look forward to seeing your costumes on the day!
