World Book Day is a registered charity on a mission to give every child and young person a book of their own.
It’s also a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading.
This is the 22nd year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 7th March 2019, children of all ages will come together to appreciate reading. Very loudly and very happily.
The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland 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.
