Today is World Book Day, a day set aside every year to celebrate reading, books, authors and illustrators. It’s marked in more than 100 countries around the world. A key aim of World Book Day is to give every child in Ireland a book of their own to keep. Every pupil received a €1.50 World Book Day Token which can be exchanged for one of nine exclusive €1.50 World Book Day Books—or, if they prefer, €1.50 off any book costing more than €3.99. So parents, please make sure you check your child’s school-bag this evening. The World Book Day Primary Resources site is packed with games, videos, ideas and inspiration to help you celebrate books and reading all year round & can be accessed at http://www.worldbookday.com/resources/primary/.
