World Book Day is here. It comes round so quickly and yet again I am scanning through all the world book day tokens the kids have received from their school.
I think world book day is a great thing and a chance to celebrate books and reading and have some fun. I remember our celebrations in school that involved the whole class marching (single file) down into the village to the village bookstore to spend our vouchers. I felt an intense pressure to find a book in the alloted 15 minutes ‘perusing time’.
Today we seem to have evolved a bit more with the World Book Day £1 token valid from 1st-31st March and Waterstone’s has great World Book Day stands with books specifically published for the purpose of being bought with the tokens. Four days in to March and they are proving ever popular once again.
You can visit the offical world book day website for great information on events and the overall benefits of this celebration.
You heard them!!
This is a full list of the official £1 WBD books available from Waterstone’s, but the book tokens can be used as part-payment on any other book. Before each title is an age recommendation/suitability. I will review my favourite titles for boys and girls later on today so please check back. Happy reading everyone!
