Best World Book Day ideas
World Book Day – 7 March 2019 – has become one of the highlights of the school calendar. On the other hand, it can also be viewed as yet another way to further exhaust parents who thought they'd ticked the fancy dress boxes for the year with Halloween and Christmas Jumper Day...
But we rather enjoy World Book Day as it's about a lot more than the costumes – it's a chance to introduce your children to new books and characters, and to develop their love of reading.
Research has repeatedly shown that reading to your child – and with your child – is the single most important thing you can do for their education. It helps develop their vocabulary, encourages their imaginative thinking and improves analytical thinking, it can reduce stress... the list goes on and on.
Here's how to enjoy World Book Day with costumes, ideas and – of course – books.
