World Book Day 2017

Celebrate World Book Day 2017 with Scholastic. Capitalise on the excitement and get ready for Thursday 2nd March by running a Book Fair, a Book Club, or even publishing your pupils’ work in their very own book!

World Book Day is a huge celebration of authors, illustrators, books and reading in schools, libraries and homes in over 100 countries. It’s the world’s biggest annual celebration of reading – and 2017 marks World Book Day’s 20th anniversary, so it’s set to be even bigger and better than ever.

You can celebrate books in all sorts of ways; by sharing a favourite story, dressing up as a favourite book character or heading to your local bookshop or library for a storytelling.

If it’s reading inspiration you’re looking for, our bumper World Book Day Book Club has just landed. Packed with exciting reads from your pupils’ favourites – like Wimpy Kid, David Walliams, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler – at pocket-money-friendly prices, and positively bursting with new releases, film tie-ins and home learning activities, the only problem will be choosing what they should spend their £1 World Book Day tokens on. You can redeem your World Book Day tokens online; just enter the number of tokens at the checkout to claim your £1 off.

As always, every order over £10 will earn you and your school 20% in free books – so you can spread the joy of reading on World Book Day and all year-round.
