Please could pupils bring a favourite book to school on this day.
Pupils should be prepared to share the reasons why it is their favourite book with others in their class. They can use a book from the classroom or the school library if they wish. Just ask your child to speak to their teacher.
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 receives 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. Your child’s token will be given out in class and can be redeemed at most UK bookshops. Please help your child to use it on or around World Book Day by visiting your local bookshop (if you need help finding one, visit booksellers.org.uk/bookshopsearch).
