Welcome to our Secondary Hub

World Book Day is about celebrating books and reading all year round. We hope you find activities and advice here to help you enjoy reading not just on World Book Day but every day of the year. This year, we are working with our partners at the National Literacy Trust to turn our focus toward young people and their reading experiences. Find out more and host your own conversation.

There will be lots more to come as we get closer to this year’s celebrations, so make sure to keep an eye out on here for updates and more exciting content!  If you can’t wait why not try our Author & Illustrator Academy videos to give you hints and tips, and talk to your friends for inspiration. Or, why not check out our TOP 25 BOOKS FOR TEENS to share as voted for by you.

Our approach incorporates six elements which evidence shows support children and young people 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.
