Welcome to our hub for families

World Book Day is about celebrating books and reading all year round. It’s never too early to encourage a love of reading and we hope you find activities and advice here to help you enjoy sharing stories together as a family not just on World Book Day but every day of the year.

Our Approach is based on research which tells us that there are 6 elements to supporting a child to read for pleasure:

All of our work is designed to support one of these areas.

For little ones and early readers, head over to Share A Story Corner where you can find video stories and activities to enjoy together, fluent and independent readers can join our World Book Day Book Club with different books to inspire you every month and everyone can enjoy the free audiobooks in our World of Stories.

We’re also here to help with reading recommendations and book lists for everyone to enjoy from reluctant readers to avid bookworms.
