What Is World Book Day?

2019 will be the 22nd year that World Book Day is celebrated. The aim of the celebration is to encourage children to explore the wonders of reading; providing them with the opportunity to own a book of their own. Through the use of National Book Tokens Ltd, book tokens are sent to children in the UK (with nearly one for each child aged under 18 in the country), this allows them to get one of the ten exclusive books for completely free, or get £1 off any book or audio book which costs more than £2.99 (providing the bookshop or book club is participating).

When Is World Book Day?

Every year the United Kingdom celebrates World Book Day on the first Thursday of March. In 2019, it will be the 7th of March, and in 2020 it will be the 5th of March.
