Enjoying World Book Day

| 3

Hooray! Today is World Book Day in the UK! Later on we’ll be off to choose a book or two from those available for just £1 in celebration of World Book Day. Before that, however, we’ll probably play a few of these book-based games; I think the Miffy memory game and also the How to Train Your Dragon game will be particularly popular with my girls.

The World Book Day site also has videos (I love the one of Julia Donaldson singing a song from Tyrannosaurus Drip) and there are loads of colouring in and other activity sheets, including some for Charlie and Lola, Maisy and The Gruffalo.

We’ll also be on the look out for information regarding the new online children’s book club being launched by our daily newspaper, The Guardian. Should be good!

What are you doing to enjoy World Book Day?

      Hi Anne, confusingly on the UK celebrate World Book day today… for the rest of the world it’s in April. But the date in April falls during school holidays in the UK and as the kids play such a huge role in World Book day the date was moved to coincide with when kids would be in school and around.

    We made flapjacks from Pooh’s cookbook and a book tent, as well as visiting the library and of course reading lots and lots of books. Also watched a lot of the videos on the World Book Day site – they’re so good! Sounds like you had a lovely day!
