A celebration of books, of authors, of illustrators and of reading!
Designated by UNESCO as a World celebration of books, marked by 100 countries.
Check out www.worldbookday.com for more information, including resources, games and more.
Even if you are a Stay-at-home-mum and not involved in any special organised activity, there's nothing to stop you celebrating the day in some way.
Try the following:
- set up a little tent in the bedroom or sitting room, put in a couple of cushions and a basket of books and make a "reading nook" for the day.
- Phone your local library in the morning to find out what events and activities they might be running during the day that you can take your child/ren along to.
- Act out scenes from favourite books with dressing-up, dolls, small-world toys or puppets.
- visit a book shop and select a few new books
