Thursday March 2nd; we’re celebrating World Book Day 2023. The World Book Day organisation is a charity whose mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.
The emphasis this year is on making it YOUR World Book Day. Since its inception in the UK and Ireland over 25 years ago, the day has grown to become an essential calendar fixture for schools and communities. The day puts the focus on reading for pleasure and developing the child’s own choice in reading. It aims to embed a habit of reading and the wide range of benefits it brings.
There’s a spread of free online events for ages 5 through to 14, and a selection of free resources. Go to the literacy trust website for more.
