This is the 23rd year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 5 March 2020, children of all ages will come together to appreciate reading. Very loudly and very happily. 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.
15 million children (under the age of 18) will be given a £1 voucher to purchase one of the 2020 World Book Day books at participating book sellers. And we are delighted to announce that a set of all 12 books from the 2020 list will be available to loan in libraries across Hampshire from the 5 March 2020.
Here are the World Book Day Books that you will be able to borrow:
