World Book Day 2016

Thursday, 3 March 2016

World Book Day has to be one of my favourite days of the year! World Book Day is usually celebrated on the 23rd of April each year, but here in the UK, Ireland and Wales we celebrate it on the first Thursday of March, and this years that's the 3rd of March, which is today! When I was in Primary school, I used to LOVE getting dressed up as my favourite book character for World Book Day! I have dressed up as Harry Potter, Matilda and Cinderella, but sadly do not have any pictures to prove it :( It was always such a fun day and I always really enjoyed making my costume and looked forward as to what character my friends would dress up as!

In the UK, World Book Day celebrates the wonders of reading and is mainly aimed at young children and pre-teens to encourage them to read, although I personally think World Book Day should be celebrated and aimed at everyone as there are adults who do not read and should be encouraged to do so!

I believe reading is very important to people of all ages and backgrounds as it allows us to connect with the characters created which in turn exercises our imagination! It also helps with how we speak, our spelling, our vocabulary and overall mental health among many other things!

I have recently made a video on my Youtube channel about World Book Day and talk about the event in general and about my favourite Wolrd Book Day book from the past!
