World Book Day, the world’s biggest annual celebration of books and reading takes place today, Thursday, 5th March 2015.


World Book Day is a partnership of publishers, booksellers and interested parties who work together to promote books and reading with the aim of encouraging children to explore the pleasures of books and reading.


Children will be given a £1 Book Token in their nurseries and schools, which they can use to claim their World Book Day title in bookshops across the country from 2nd March 2015.
