World Book Day is a celebration here at Boldon!

World Book Day is a celebration here at Boldon! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.

This is the 20th year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 2nd March 2017, we are reminded to come together to appreciate reading.

The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and see how enthused we all are about reading books.
