World Book Day celebrations...

Pupils and staff from Tilbury Pioneer Academy recently entered into the spirit of ‘World Book Day’ by dressing up as their favourite character from a book.

World Book Day was designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and is marked in over 100 countries around the globe. World Book Day is a partnership of publishers, booksellers and interested parties who work together to promote books and reading for the personal enrichment and enjoyment of all.

The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own. World Book Day brings children together to develop the love of books and reading; just 10 minutes a day can make a huge difference to a child’s future!
