About World Book Day

World Book Day is a huge celebration! It's a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and reading in schools, libraries and homes in over 100 countries all over the world.

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. Our blog is jam-packed with great ideas on how to celebrate stories, and we have pulled together some brilliant world book day costume ideas on our Pinterest boards. If it is new books you are looking for, then you'll find the Scholastic shop is bursting with ideas for every age and interest and you can redeem your World Book Day tokens online! Just enter the number of tokens at the checkout to claim your £1 off.

We Are Writers

Turn your pupils into published authors this World Book Day!

We Are Writers is a unique literacy project that offers every child the chance to see their writing published in a real book.

Simple, fun and free for schools to take part, it's an incredible way to enthuse and excite any child, making it an ideal way to celebrate World Book Day 2015!

Start your book now so that you can unveil your free sample book on 5th March 2015… just imagine your pupils' excitement! Or ask them to write stories, poems, and letters – any type of writing – as a World Book Day task and use the writing to create your commemorative book afterwards. When the final books come in, children are so proud of their achievements that every parent, grandparent and family member will want a copy! The good news is that you can earn Scholastic Rewards for free books and raise funds for your school with every book sold.
