The World Book Day is right around the corner! World Book Day is a celebration of the love for books and reading. It was established by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995 and was pioneered by the UK and Ireland in 1997. The charity is funded by publishers, booksellers, sponsors, and fellow book lovers. This year, the celebration will peak on the 4th of March 2021 and all children are encouraged to dress up as their favourite book characters. They will engage in fun ways to promote a healthy love for books! Check out some of the benefits of books and reading below.
