ESA Astronaut Tim Peake supports WBD’s Share a Story
European Space Agency astronaut Tim Peake
leads World Book Day celebrations today, calling on children and young people to #ShareAStory. A host of authors, illustrators and book-loving public figures
are supporting World Book Day’s call to parents and carers to read with children and young people for ten minutes on World Book Day and every other day. Sharing stories together for just ten minutes a day has long-lasting effects on a child’s future and being read to is critical in igniting children’s enthusiasm for reading.
