World Book Day is a day to celebrate book. It takes place on the 5th of March as designated by UNESCO as an International celebration of books and reading.
Children are naturally imaginative so why not encourage them to read, and use their imagination to fill in the blanks. Too often the media we consume is shown rather than imagined. By encouraging children, at a young age, from pre-school all the way up to secondary schools we allow them to explore a format that we may end up forgetting.
There are also a number of events taking place at various WH Smith around England as well as the Ennis Book Club Festival 2009.
