Thursday March 3 marks the 25th anniversary of World Book Day and to help schools and students get involved, there are some great new resources to inspire and encourage reading for pleasure.
With a continued commitment to promote reading for pleasure and offer every child a book of their own, this year, the global charity World Book Day has a particular focus on reaching children from disadvantaged backgrounds and its theme this year is “You Are A Reader“.
