World book day ideas, resources and support from CLPE!

World Book Day is coming up on Thursday 7th March 2024. This year the focus is all about making World Book Day your own and read in your own way.

As part of our work to support all teachers in helping children read and write for pleasure, we have created free resources and support for teachers, schools and parents to celebrate World Book Day and beyond and to encourage reading for pleasure among all children year round.  

Last year, we worked with World Book Day and our friends at National Literacy Trust and the Open University to create a resource to help you engage parents with reading for pleasure.  Download the resource to support your work in your school.

We have lots of free resources on our own website to encourage a love of reading in your school.

Make World Book Day your own and celebrate with CLPE Resources! 

Five ways to bring books to life on World Book Day and beyond…

  1. Watch a poet perform.
  2. Read and perform a poem yourself.
  3. Hear an author read their story.
  4. Learn how to draw a character with an illustrator.
  5. Explore a new book at home with free home learning resources.
