World Book Day 2021

World Book Day will be a little different this year but that doesn’t change the powerful and positive message it sends about books and reading.

As part of this year’s World Book Day campaign, there are a number of exciting new developments in store including:

The new World Book Day Book Club

Author & Illustrator Academy videos featuring all the brilliant £1 book authors and illustrators (now live).

Share a Story Live Events will encourage children of all ages to get involved in reading for pleasure, so be sure to save the date and tune in.

All Rushcliffe students will receive a World Book Day £1 voucher (there will be a digital version if school remains closed in March) which can be used to buy one of the £1 books or to put towards any book of their choice. Check out all the new World Book Day books here.

Scholastic Books will also be celebrating World Book Day with an exciting schedule of FREE online events Monday 1st – Friday 5th March. Students

can enjoy an array of draw-a-longs, writing workshops etc. hosted by well-known authors and illustrators, including Michael Rosen and Liz Pichon, who will run a doodle session and talk about her new Tom Gates book, Ten Tremendous Tales!
