For World Book Day 2021, we are SO EXCITED to announce the first-ever official World Book Day song! Get on your feet for the nation’s favourite rapping English teacher MC Grammar, who has created a brilliant book-themed tune to help us celebrate World Book Day! Hooray!
The World Book Day Song follows MC Grammar as he embarks on a journey to find a new book, courtesy of his World Book Day £1 book voucher. On his way he stumbles across a fantastic array of classic and new children’s books – can you spot them all?!
Once you’ve enjoyed the song, MG Grammar has set some brilliant activities you can do at school or at home from writing your own book rap to fun ways to bring books to life.
We have a special message from MC Grammar who says: “I am so proud to be a World Book Day Ambassador. Mixing the power of music with the magic of books is the coolest combination and an incredible opportunity to get kids excited about books and reading.”
About MC Grammar
MC Grammar is the creation of award-winning teacher and rapper Jacob Mitchell, who went viral in 2019 after a video of him rapping popular children’s book The Gruffalo received over 5 million views. Having struggled in school himself, the father of two credits his discovery of books as his turning point with education. Jacob believes no child should be left behind, and that there needs to excitement, challenge, inclusion and, most importantly, fun in the classroom!
The World Book Day Song has been released by Decca Records and in collaboration with World Book Day, Monkey and Encanta Talent Management. All proceeds will be donated to World Book Day to support our vision to engage children from all backgrounds with a life-long habit of reading.
