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. You can also find all the exciting events, resources and activities that our charity partners have put together for World Book Day 2022 here.

We’ve put together a handy guide to explain how the £1/€1.50 book tokens work and how you can support children to choose a book of their own. For teachers in Ireland, find everything you need to know here.

Our approach incorporates six elements which evidence shows 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.
