World Book Day

World Book Day 2021 will be celebrated on Thursday 4th March.


What is World Book Day?

Created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995, World Book Day is a worldwide celebration of books and readings. It is a charity funded by publishers and booksellers, which is marked in over 100 countries around the globe. 


World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading. The charity's mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.


Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income. The World Book Day charity wants to see more children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, with a life-long habit of reading for pleasure and the improved life chances this brings them.
