• We accept


World Book Day 2021 is going to look a little bit different this year, but we plan on making it extra special for children across the United Kingdom. We know how hard families are working to keep their children entertained during this lockdown and families right across the country are coming together to put children’s education first.

To celebrate World Book Day, we are asking children who sadly cannot be at school who your HERO is from your favourite book! We would love you to get creative in bringing your favourite book character to life. Using any arts and crafts materials you can find at home, create your book character, and share a photo of your creations on our Facebook and Instagram.

To give you a couple of examples, this could be a painted picture of Harry Potter or a magic wand made from a branch in your back garden!
