Happy World Book Day!

worldbookdayToday is World Book Day, a one-day event that takes place in the UK and Ireland in which kids come together to read. The reading celebration is currently in its 16th year.

“The main aim is to encourage children to explore the pleasure of books and reading by providing them with an opportunity to have a book of their own,” explains the event’s website. “This may sound like a very simple idea, but unfortunately, many children do not have access to books in their homes.”

As part of the festivities, there are many reading activities at bookstores and schools around the UK and Ireland today. There is also a sale on books on the World Book Day site, in which many books are being offered for £1. The site breaks out books by age, making it easier to shop for children at different levels.
