What's happening this World Book Day?

My oh my are you in for a treat this World Book Day – we don’t want everyone to get too excited but we have rather a lot going on.

That is of course a lie – we want everyone to get very excited indeed.

We’ve been working hard with our friends at World Book Day and if you take a look at the World Book Day token this year (there are 15 million of them handed out across the UK and Ireland!) you may just recognise a book loving heroine of ours. Yes that’s right, Matilda will feature on this year’s World Book Day £1 token.

What’s that you cry - you want more? Ok then!

We’ve also got the most wonderful range of costumes in all the major retailers so whether you want to wow as Wonka, channel your inner Trunch or be as fantastic as Mr Fox himself then you simply must hit the shops.

You can find ranges in Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrison’s and all good independents.

Oh and teachers, don’t worry there’s plenty for you too. We’ve curated our very best lesson plans with activities ideal for World Book Day and even added brand new pre-school resources to our site, especially for the occasion.

Plus, we’ll be launching something very special indeed; Miss Honey’s Mailing List. That’s right the most wonderful teacher the literary world has ever known is set to be delighting teacher inboxes fortnightly. Sign up for lesson plans direct to your inbox and even the chance to win some pretty exciting prizes – don’t’ get too giddy but our Pritt stick giveaway could be making a comeback.

Wow! What a list! May we suggest you keep your eyes peeled, there’s all sorts of exciting content set to flood our feeds this World Book Day – Matilda Wormwood would be proud!
