It is good to read

World Book Day is on the 5th March, where lots of nursery and primary school children dress up as their favourite book character. When the little, big man was younger, we, well I, spend a lot of time looking for particular costumes for him that would fit and were not too expensive for a one day wear. I did manage to persuade him to get a bigger sizeof one costume in order for him to wear it the following year.

Marked in over 100 countries across the globe, World Book Day is a UNESCO initiative that aims to celebrate both books and reading, especially among younger members of our societies. In the UK and Ireland, National Book Tokens are sent out so that kids can find a book of their very own something to unlock the power of their minds in a way that the increasing prevalence of digital screens may not provide.

The simplest way to make sure we raise literate children is... to show them that reading is a pleasurable activity. And that means finding books that they enjoy, giving them access to those books and letting them read them.

Neil Gaiman
