World Book Day 2021
On Thursday 4th March 2021 it is World Book Day.
World Book Day is a day dedicated to promoting the love of reading in children and young people. They provide all children in the UK with book token so they can buy a book of their own. Reading for pleasure is an important part of growing up and everyone should be encouraged to find their genre; whether it's adventure stories or mythical stories or funny stories or even romantic stories!
In school we would be thinking about our favourite books. I wonder what your favourite book is?
Here is selection of books that we have in school that I think you might enjoy reading:
