World Book Day

Tomorrow (Thursday 1st March) is World Book Day - Whoop, whoop!

A celebration of books, of authors, of illustrators and of reading!

Designated by UNESCO as a World celebration of books, marked by 100 countries.

Check out for more information, including resources, games and more.  

Even if you are a Stay-at-home-mum and not involved in any special organised activity, there's nothing to stop you celebrating the day in some way.
Try the following:

  • set up a little tent in the bedroom or sitting room, put in a couple of cushions and a basket of books and make a "reading nook" for the day.
  • Phone your local library in the morning to find out what events and activities they might be running during the day that you can take your child/ren along to.
  • Act out scenes from favourite books with dressing-up, dolls, small-world toys or puppets.
  • visit a book shop and select a few new books
