World Book Day has just revealed next year’s twelve £1 books, which will be available in participating book shops and can be purchased using WBD £1 book tokens issued to coincide with this annual event. What a fantastic way to ensure that every child can enjoy owning a book – and there’s a great choice of titles this year ranging from picture books to novellas for teenagers.
Registration for the tokens is now open! Please note that there is a short window of opportunity – you only have until 5.00pm on Friday 30th November 2018 to register. State and Independent Secondary Schools, Sixth Form Colleges, Sure Start, Day Nurseries and Playgroups MUST register to receive tokens, even if you’ve registered before. Although other schools receive tokens automatically, you still need to register to ensure that you receive the correct number. See here for further details.
For more information about the different ways in which you can use the tokens see here. The tokens are valid from Thursday 28th February – 31st March 2019.
Have a look around the World Book Day website while you’re there – it is a rich source of inspiration, activities and ideas throughout the year, with listings for upcoming book events, book trailers, quizzes, competitions and more.
REGISTRATION FOR WBD TOKENS CLOSES AT 5.00pm ON FRIDAY 30th NOVEMBER 2018
