This week sees the celebration of World Book Day, an annual event which shines a spotlight on the power of reading and the love of books. 2022 marks the 25th anniversary of this worldwide event, which, since it started, has helped to foster a lifelong love of reading in children and young people across the globe.
The theme of World Book Day this year is ‘Everyone is a reader’. It aims to support every single person to have the opportunity to engage with the pleasure and opportunities which a love of reading provides. There are lots of exciting events planned to celebrate World Book Day, and beyond, including author talks, competitions, free digital events, and a choice of specially commissioned books by the nation’s favourite children’s authors which can be purchased for £1 with the National Book Day token.
But reading is not just for World Book Day of course. Fostering a love of reading is one of the most effective ways to support children to achieve and learn. We’ve got lots of stickers to help support literacy in the classroom and at home too. Have a look at our personalised reading alien stickers with space to add your own name. They’re ideal stickers for teachers, and helpful and versatile reading rewards. You can have a look at all of our lovely literacy stickers over on our website.
We hope you enjoy your World Book Day celebrations whatever form they take. We’re looking forward to seeing some Harry Potters and Gruffalos on our way to work, and maybe some children dressed up too!
