World Book Day

The purpose of ‘World Book Day’ was to enhance the appreciation of the written word and dedicate a day to celebrate books, reading, authors and illustrators as we have so much to be thankful for – the writers who write such interesting books and the illustrators who bring the characters and the story to life. Students were encouraged to think about why a book and character are appealing to them as well as what they can say to make the book appealing to someone else. It is a day when people celebrate books and reading – reading for pleasure as well as reading for information.
