World Book Day

Dear Parents,

 

 

World Book Day takes place this Thursday 3 March 2016, and we would like make this a special and memorable day.

 

World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children.

 

Throughout the day, the children will be participating in a variety of exciting reading and writing activities, inspired by their imaginative costumes.

 

To make the day even more special, everyone will be given a £1 World Book Day Token that can be used to get £1 off any book costing £2.99 or more. The children will be able to use their token at the Book Fair (w/c 14 March) or a variety of other shops.

You can find out more about the books at www.worldbookday.com/books

 

You can join us in building your child’s enthusiasm for books well beyond World Book Day

by reading together regularly and joining your local library if you are not yet members.

Children are never too young to start their journey with books, and the benefits of reading are enormous—so we hope, like us, you will use World Book Day to celebrate it with your child.

 

Regards
