“World Book Day 2014” with K.J. Rollinson

World Book Day 2014.

World Book Day is a yearly event to promote reading, publishing and copyright. In the United Kingdom this is usually recognised on the first Thursday in March.

World Book Day Wales co-ordinated by the Welsh Books Council, and is supported by the Welsh Government.World Book Day Wales was held on Thursday, 6 March 2014.

The following photograph shows a little boy at his school’s world book day in Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom.

Evan’s mum emailed me saying ‘Fallyn and the Dragons’ has to be read to him every night before he goes to sleep. She also told me that at the school’s World Book Day, the older children read to the younger children excerpts from the books and the teacher said they loved them. I only hope they loved them enough to buy them!

World Book Day is a celebration! It is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it is a celebration of reading. In fact, it is the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.

This is the 17th year there has been a World Book Day, and on the 6th March 2014 children of all ages came together to appreciate reading. The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own. Schools that had specially registered to take part received packs of book tokens and age-ranged World Book Day Resource Packs (age-ranged into Nursery/Pre-School, Primary and Secondary) full of ideas and activities, display material and more information about how to get involved in World Book Day.
