World Book Day 2022

Jesus said, ‘I am the Good Shepherd… I know my sheep and my sheep know me.’ John 10.14

World Book Day takes place on Thursday 3rd March and we hope you’ll join us as we come together to encourage every child in our school to be a reader and love books. To celebrate World Book Day, we will have plenty of fun activities taking place throughout the day including:

What you can do with your children at home:

Use your £1 World Book Day book token to get a FREE book!

Getting a free £1 book for your child is easy – simply take your book token to your nearest bookseller and swap it for a World Book Day £1 book OR get £1 off any book or audiobook costing £2.99 or more. You can help your child choose their £1 book by showing them the exciting ‘Look Insides’ by following this link.

Bookshops and supermarkets are a big part of what makes World Book Day special and thousands will be taking part in World Book Day 2022, with many putting on special events to celebrate World Book Day. Your local bookseller might be on the high street or could be a supermarket. Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco all stock the £1 books. You can find your nearest bookseller by following this link.

There are also lots of fun reading ideas and resources for you to enjoy with your child at home on the World Book Day Family Hub as well as brilliant book recommendations for all ages.

We’re looking forward to celebrating World Book Day at Bayford and hope you will join in too with your child at home.

World Book Day could not happen without your support – thank you, you make it happen!
