World Book Day 2019

 

Celebrating World Book Day in the United Kingdom.

 I cannot think of a better gift for a child, than a book or a book token. Growing up, these were always my favourite gifts; and even now as an adult, I count book tokens and books amongst my favourite things.

On World Book Day, every child in full-time education in the United Kingdom is given a voucher to be spent on books. How amazing is that?

What could be more magical than reading to a child? Stories open up a world of wonder, feeding the imagination and educating at the same time.

My mum who is ninety years young at the end of the month remembers with great joy the books she read as a child- amongst them was Milly Molly Mandy , written and illustarated  byJoyceLankester Brisley.
