Hey guys and happy world book day!
This is one of my favourite days of the year to be perfectly honest. In my primary school, and like many around Britain, we all got dressed up as our favourite book characters and basically just read for the day. I can’t remember many of my costumes now that I think back on it, but I remember clearly one year of me being dressed up as a girl who walked dogs to make money in the book- I think it was just me cheating and wearing jeans and a top for a day to be honest. But anyway I love the excitement that this day can bring to children!
I really hope this day encourages loads more children to read. It’s a shame in this day and age reading is treated as an oddity when it really should be celebrated. Books are the stepping stones of knowledge after all!
One thing I love about world book day are the free books that you can get if you live in the UK or Ireland! I actually didn’t get any vouchers today, but I think I will tomorrow as apparently the teachers forgot to give them out…
Anyway here are all of the books that you can get if you have the WBD voucher with you or you can buy them for £1! Or you can get £1 off any book in participating stores, including Waterstones if my memory is right.
Yep so as you can see by the pre-school and the key stages 1 and 2, these are meant for children, but nobody said that you can’t buy a middle grade! As everybody can see one of our favourite authors, Rainbow Rowell, has graced World Book Day with her presence in the form of Kindred Spirits. And it’s only for a quid! I am definitely buying that but I think I want to get Harper and the Sea of Spirits as well which is the second one on the second line as it looks cool and again it’s for a quid.
Here is the complete list of the books down below (going from left to right from the picture) and the links go to their respective World Book Day Page.
Again, happy world book day everyone!
I’ll write soon!
