Reading Is Power: What's It All About?

We want to empower young people to talk passionately and confidently about the books that inspire them. Share the READING IS POWER MANIFESTO, created by young people with your students. Try writing your own as a class, year group or school to show what Reading is Power means to you. Download Manifesto

We also have a dedicated website for young people. Head over to or follow us on Instagram @worldbookdaysocial for book recommendations, author podcasts and chat with bestselling authors and illustrators, all based around our theme of READING IS POWER.
