Schools and Nurseries
Welcome to our schools and nurseries hub. We’ve put ideas for celebrating World Book Day as well as resources for supporting reading for pleasure all year round in one handy place to help you find everything you need.
The evidence base shows there are 6 building elements which support a child to read for pleasure:
- Being read to regularly
- Access to books at home
- The ability for children to choose what they want to read
- Having trusted adults and peers sharing and recommending books
- The reading experience being enjoyable
- Designated time to read
These 6 elements shape and guide what World Book Day does and all our resources support one of these elements. Explore the sections below to find ideas for your children.
