World Book Day

1st March 2018

Sir Mike Penning backs the 'Share a Story' Campaign on World Book Day.

Schools, bookshops, libraries, businesses and homes nationwide are invited to join this nationwide social event to enjoy the pleasures of reading and SHARE A STORY on World Book Day… and every day.

Spending just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with children can make a crucial difference to their reading and listening skills and it’s also great fun for all involved. Stories encourage conversation, introduce children to more complex vocabulary and builds confidence when it comes to reading aloud.

You can read together anywhere and everywhere, from breakfast to bedtime! In the park, on the train, on the sofa, on a plane – reading and sharing stories can happen anywhere at any time. So why not dig out your favourite story and get ready to #ShareaStory
