A day to celebrate the joys of books and reading. Further details on the World Book Day website - 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.
