Today March 3rd 2022 is World Book Day.

World Book Day was created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995 as a worldwide celebration of books and reading. It is marked in over 100 countries around the globe. 

The first World Book Day Ireland took place in 1997 to encourage young people to discover the pleasure of reading.

World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading.

Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income. The aim of World Book day is to see more children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, with a life-long habit of reading for pleasure and the improved life chances this brings them.

Spending just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with children can make a crucial difference to their future success and it’s fun for all involved.

We encourage all of our foster carers to instilla love of reading for pleasure in the children and young people in their care, remember you can read together anywhere and everywhere, from breakfast to bedtime! In the park, on the train, on the sofa, – reading and sharing stories can happen anywhere at any time.

There are lots of resources available for free for World Book Day to encourage the joy of reading
