The Big Book Off


the-big-book-offWe’ve partnered with the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE) to put together a set of 20 different ideas for celebrating books and reading for Primary and Secondary schools.

Based around the action words Create, Imagine, Discover, Explore and Experience, each card includes simple suggestions and case studies, so that you can see how the ideas work in practice. And there are lots of ideas for sharing books and reading.

Whether you pick one idea or try a few, The Big Book Off will help ensure that the gains of celebrating books and reading on World Book Day continue to ripple long beyond the day itself.
