Because books aren’t just for bedtime
World Book Day was designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading and is marked in over 100 countries around the globe on the first Thursday in March. This year’s theme is ‘Share a story’.
It is the perfect opportunity for parents, teachers and children to join together in appreciation of the world of literature and the lifelong pleasure of reading.

And a little plug for the first-ever library, Yardley Wood Library, that I (Ed) visited as a child and which started my lifelong enjoyment of libraries and books.
