Happy World Book Day to one and all. What a great, big, buzzy celebration of books and reading this is set to be.
In case you didn’t know, through World Book Day millions of children in the UK can get their hands on a voucher to spend on a new book. Children can even buy one of eight special £1 books by a group of wonderful authors, including Julia Donaldson and Jacqueline Wilson.
It’s a good day to think about how you’re going to continue your reading journey. Why not make a new World Book Day book the first of 20 books to share as part of the Bookstart 20 pledge?
Bookstartis the free books programme for babies and toddlers, and is 20 years old in 2012. To mark Bookstart’s birthday, parents, teachers, librarians, children and celebrities are all pledging to share 20 books this year – it’s easy to join them by making your own pledge.
