World Book Day 4 March 2021: Celebrate With Us

With most children currently stuck at home, it is essential that they can escape into a good book – which is why World Book Day is more important than ever. As World Book Day vouchers cannot be used online, we will not be stocking the official World Book Day books this year - but we are still bursting with ideas and inspiration for finding stories that families can share and enjoy together. And you can join in the fun with a host of online events for different ages here.
