We will distribute these to the children next week (beginning 8th March) when all the children are back in school.
The £1 book tokens can then be swapped for one of the exclusive, new and completely FREE World Book Day books available from participating booksellers or used to get £1 off any full price book or audiobook instead (as long as the book or audiobook costs at least £2.99).
World Book Day book tokens will be valid from Thursday 18 February – Sunday 28 March 2021. In 2021 participating booksellers will honour the tokens beyond the 28 March while stocks last.
VIDEO BOOKS TO ENJOY TOGETHER Take ten minutes to share stories with your little ones. Our Share A Story Corner videos have familiar characters and easy to follow stories, and tips for reading together. Look at the pictures together, guess what the characters are up to and ask your child what they think will happen next. Your child will soon be asking to read together again and again! It’s never too early to read stories with your child and spending just ten minutes every day enjoying books together can make a BIG difference to their development. Sharing stories boosts creativity and imagination, improves wellbeing, is a positive experience for parents, carers, guardians, grandparents – everyone! – and is great fun!
2021’s content includes all of our brilliant £1 book authors and illustrators, with lots of exciting challenges and activities to make reading even more fun and interactive. Why not go on a wild adventure with Katherine Rundell, or hear Joseph Coelho and Fiona Lumbers share ideas on what can be on your World Book Day to-do list? Get all sorts of ideas about interactive storytelling from Tom Fletcher, and learn more about writing non-fiction with Jess French. What is the Author & Illustrator Academy? The Author & Illustrator Academy beams authors & illustrators right into classrooms so children can meet the creative minds behind their favourite books. Choose which Academy lesson to pick and then press play and let our brilliant authors and illustrators lead your class. Each inspirational ‘lesson’ is a complete package with downloadable activities, creative challenges, resources and extracts to go with each video. They are available all year round so you can screen them in class at ANY TIME that suits you. The Academy lessons are perfect for home learning as well!
