World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading. Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income. Almost 15% of children do not own their own book before they are gifted a £1 World Book Day book. (Source: OECD)
In 2021 World Book Day, just like everything else, will be different. We’re adapting to make sure that World Book Day sends a powerful and positive message about books and reading, even in lockdown.
A partnership with World Book Day will give your organisation the opportunity to encourage more children, from all backgrounds, to develop the life-long habit of reading for pleasure that will improve their life chances.
World Book Day will help you to celebrate the importance of reading together, to fundraise creatively and to engage in inspiring volunteering opportunities. Your support will help World Book Day to support and encourage today’s children to be a generation of readers, and to offer every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.
Get in touch if you are interested in working with us. We look forward to hearing from you.
