Or it will be on the 2nd March. This year sees it celebrating its 20th birthday.
Schools across the UK will be celebrating, probably with every parent’s favourite, dressing up as a book character.
For me, the great thing about World Book Day, apart from celebrating books, is the £1 book voucher that every school child is given. This gives us the opportunity to head down the local bookstore and pick up one of the special World Book Day books, or perhaps put the voucher against the cover price of another book. Either way, it’s an excuse to look at and talk about books.
Here are this year’s books. Take a look and see if there is anything your child would like. Remember stocks are limited. Whilst bookshops often carry lots of each title, some of them can fly out of the door mighty fast.
