World Book Day 2023

Updated: Mar 2

Dear Parents and Carers,

World Book Day takes place on Thursday 2nd March and we hope you’ll join us as we come together to encourage every child in school to be a reader and love books.

To celebrate World Book Day, we will have plenty of fun activities for the children to take part in throughout the day including:

o Dressing up as their favourite book character. You can find lots of creative ideas at

o Bringing in their favourite book to share with their classmates.

o Holding a World Book Day fundraising event (best dressed!) - every £1 raised goes towards giving a child a book of their own so no amount is too small.

o Fun games and quizzes

o Author and illustrator masterclasses

o Live digital events

o Share a Story Corners

o …and much, much more!

Use your £1 World Book Day book token to get a FREE book!

Getting a free £1 book for your child is easy - simply take your £1 book token that your child will receive on the day to your nearest bookseller and swap it for a World Book Day £1 book OR get £1 off any book or audiobook costing £2.99 or more. You can help your child choose their £1 book by showing them the exciting ‘Look Insides’ at

Bookshops and supermarkets are a big part of what makes World Book Day special and thousands will be taking part in World Book Day 2022, with many putting on special events to celebrate World Book Day. Your local bookseller might be on the high street or could be a supermarket. Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco all stock the £1 books. You can find your nearest bookseller at

There are also lots of fun reading ideas and resources for you to enjoy with your child at home on the World Book Day Family Hub as well as brilliant book recommendations for all ages.

We’re looking forward to celebrating World Book Day in school and hope you will join in too with your child at home.

World Book Day could not happen without the support of parents and carers - thank you, you make it happen!

Best Wishes,

Miss Harrison and Mrs Dawes
