World Book Day 2024

 On Thursday 7th March we will be celebrating World Book Day. It is a day when we celebrate the children’s favourite authors, illustrators and books.

Here at Prospect Hill Infant and Nursery, we work very hard to ensure that all children become life-long readers and we aim to foster a love of books. Reading books with children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. It helps them develop language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written word. It has astonishing benefits for children: comfort and reassurance, confidence and security, relaxation, happiness and fun.

During the week, we will be basing some of our activities around Steve Antony books. He is an award winning writer and illustrator of 22 children’s books. His picture books include “Unplugged”, “Amazing” and the “Mr Panda” series. Steve will be working with us on Monday 11th March via Teams. 

World Book Day 

This year for World Book Day we are inviting children to recreate a scene from their favourite story inside a box (shoe box/cereal box). They will be given the opportunity to use their box to retell the story to their friends during World Book Week

Please bring these boxes into school by Tuesday 6 March 2024.

For inspiration, please see the pictures below for examples of story boxes.

This is an optional activity.

On this special day, World Book Day, your child can come to school in either-

  • An outfit depicting their favourite character from any book
  • Non uniform
  • Or they can bring a prop from a story so we can guess who the character is and the story from which the prop is from

We do not expect parents/carers to go to the expense of buying any items – the whole idea is for the children to think about characters/story props they could create using their imagination using items that have at home. It is definitely not necessary or in any way expected for this event to cost our families money through buying props and costumes.

World Book Day Book Tokens

World Book Day £1 book tokens will be valid from Thursday 15th February – Sunday 31th March 2024.

On World Book Day, your child will be given a book token. All you need to do is take it along to a participating local bookseller and swap it for one of the World Book Day books! (exclusive, new and completely free.)
