NEWS IN FOCUS EXTRA | Celebrating World Book Day

Today marks the twentieth national World Book Day, where Schools across the area, celebrate National World Book Day.

In Primary Schools, youngsters are encouraged to dress up as their favourite character everything from Matilda and Charlie Bucket, to Harry Potter and many more.  

Lessons across the country will be themed on books too, from how the illustrations are made to the creative process and use of language.

 

Listen below to Craig Priest’s report on World Book Day, where he chats to two local authors Clare Harvey (The Gunner Girl and The English Agent)  and K.L.Loveley (Alice) to discuss how it’s just a fun from a writers perspective, and why more hard hitting themes can be used in novels.

If you are a parent of a youngster today, your child is likely to be sent home with a world book day token as thanks to National Book Tokens and lots of book publishers and booksellers, World Book Day, in partnership with schools all over the country, will be distributing more than 15 million £1 World Book Day book tokens to children.

When you get your book token, all you need to do is to take it to your local bookseller (there’s lots of them out there – find your local participating bookshop here and swap it for one of the TEN (exclusive, new and completely free) World Book Day books!
