World Book Day
Celebrate stories. Love reading. World Book Day is a charity funded by publishers and booksellers in the UK & Ireland.
World Book Day, is on Thursday 5th March 2020.. The main aim of the Day is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own.
Thanks to the generosity of National Book Tokens Ltd, publishers and booksellers, millions of book tokens will be sent to children and young people (some 15 million, in fact: that’s one for nearly every child aged under eighteen in the country).
They can take their book token to a local bookseller and can use it to pick one of TEN (exclusive, new and completely free) books. Or, if they’d rather, they can use it to get £1 off any book or audio book costing over £2.99 at a participating bookshop or book club (terms and conditions apply). The £1 books are also available in braille, large print & audio via Guide Dogs and RNIB. The World Book Day book tokens are valid from Thursday 27 February – Sunday 29 March 2020.
It’s all about getting kids closer to the books and authors they already love, and letting them discover more books and authors they’ll love every bit as much in the future.
