An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day first of March, repeating indefinitely
First Thursday of March every year: Celebrating books and reading.
A day to celebrate the joys of books and reading. Further details on the World Book Day website – www.worldbookday.com.
Why not celebrate World Book Day at school by using books with a global theme? Have a browse through the resources listed on the Global Dimension database under the subject ‘English: literature/story’.
We have also written a feature on Literature and global issues, which includes lots of suggestions for books to read with a global theme.
