World Book Day 2022

World Book Day

Thursday 3rd March 2022!

 

World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading. We will be celebrating World Book Day on 3 March 2022. Our mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.

 

Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income. We want to see more children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, with a life-long habit of reading for pleasure and the improved life chances this brings them. Designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, World Book Day is marked in over 100 countries around the globe.

On this day, children can come to school dressed in costume celebrating their favourite books and authors.  

 

Don't forget to use your National Book Token at your local bookseller!
