Happy World Book Day 2022!

To celebrate World Book Day 2022 on Thursday 3rd March, Lynda has put together a very special edition of the Reading 4 Pleasure newsletter that she writes for Christ Church Junior School in Ramsgate. And today we’re sharing it with you!

We asked children’s authors and illustrators to tell us why they think World Book Day is important, and we got some wonderful replies. From poet Brian Moses to fantasy story-spinner Sinéad O’Hart, we are so happy to bring you their thoughts. We even got a reply from author extraordinaire and Lifetime Ambassador of the School Libraries Group of CILIP, Philip Ardagh himself!

We think it would be a pity for these great insights to have a limited audience. So we decided to share this edition of the newsletter here and on our social media for everyone to see! Please feel free to download them (you can save the images by right-clicking, then opening in new tab), or quote from them for your own World Book Day activities.

If you’d prefer the newsletter as a PDF, you can download it below:

We hope you all have a fantastic and fun World Book Day on Thursday!
