In the UK and Ireland World Book Day is on Thursday 3rd March 2011. The charity initiative was introduced to encourage children's reading of books and is supported by schools, nurseries, play groups, libraries etc. P's nursery usually held fancy dress days and had visitors in fromthe library to read to the children as well as holding competitions. Now that she is at school it has gone a bit quiet about the campaign and we just get the money off voucher sent home but P loves reading so instead I love to fill the day with once she gets home with activities linked to her favourties stories.
