World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading.
The aim is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own. Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income.
We all want to see more children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, with a life-long habit of reading for pleasure and the improved life chances this brings them. Designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, World Book Day is marked in over 100 countries around the globe.
The staff at our Arc School Napton have set a World Book Day challenge for the children! They have been recorded some video clips reading their favourite books but have concealed their identities with a mask.......it’s up to the children to guess who it is behind the mask. Can you have a guess?
Good luck and Happy World Book Day!
