JOIN OUR CAMPAIGN TO GET THE NATION SHARING STORIES FROM BREAKFAST TO BEDTIME
Welcome to our nationwide campaign to help change children’s lives, by making story-sharing a habit of a lifetime and creating readers for life. Reading for pleasure is in decline, so we want to boost it back up, raise awareness and spark millions of imaginations.
Schools, bookshops, libraries, businesses and homes nationwide are invited to join our fun nationwide social event to enjoy the pleasures of reading and SHARE A STORY on World Book Day… and every day. Spending just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with children can make a crucial difference to their outcome and it’s fun for all involved. You can read together anywhere and everywhere, from breakfast to bedtime! In the park, on the train, on the sofa, on a plane – reading and sharing stories can happen anywhere at any time.
