We love World Book Day at the National Literacy Trust! The annual celebration of authors, illustrators, books and reading is one of our favourite days of the year. World Book Day 2020 is coming on Thursday 5 March.
As well as celebrating each year in March, we also know how important it is for schools and families to try to make every day a book day.
For World Book Day 2019, we released research that shows the need to celebrate books and reading is greater than ever. The research shows that only a quarter (26%) of children now read daily, compared with 43% in 2015.
Here are some free resources to help you keep the World Book Day spirit going all year round.
