Digital £1/€1.50 Book Token

Digital £1/€1.50 Book Token

Register for the digital £1/€1.50 book token

For World Book Day 2021, we are helping schools and nurseries/pre-schools distribute the £1/€1.50 book tokens to children and young people who aren’t able to be at school/nursery by offering a digital version of the book token. 

Registration for the digital token is open to ALL schools and nurseries/pre-schools regardless of whether they have previously registered to take part in World Book Day. Once registered you will receive links to PDFs of the £1/€1.50 book tokens for Nurseries/Primary Schools and for Secondary Schools. All you need to do is copy the relevant link to the token into your school/nursery communications to families. 

The World Book Day £1/€1.50 books are a gift from booksellers, who fully fund the cost of the £1/€1.50 book token redemptions. Check with your local bookseller what plans they have in place for World Book Day. Please note:

  • The £1/€1.50 book token can be exchanged for one of our exclusive, new £1 books (see the full line-up here) OR for getting £1/€1.50 off any book or audiobook costing £2.99/€3.99 or more in participating bookshops and supermarkets.
  • The book token is valid from Thursday 18 February – Sunday 28 March 2021. Participating booksellers will honour the tokens beyond the 28 March while stocks last. Please contact your local bookseller to check if they are able to offer £1/€1.50 off other titles.
  • The book token can be printed out and taken to your local bookseller. Booksellers such as Sainsbury’s and Asda are unable to accept the voucher on a phone or tablet screen. For all other booksellers, please check before you visit.
