The well-loved celebration of reading is taking place once again this year. Take a look at our ideas for getting your children involved.

Teacher reading to her class

World Book Day (WBD) is a worldwide reading initiative celebrated in more than 100 countries. The aim of the event here in the UK is to help children explore the joy of reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own. You will hopefully already have received your WBD Schools Pack, full of activity ideas and resources. All children are also entitled to a £1 Book Token that can be exchanged for one of the six specially published WBD £1 Books, or redeemed against any book or audiobook at a participating bookshop or book club. Other than Dr. Seuss on the Loose!, all the other books feature two stories in one. Visit for more details.
