World Book Day is celebrating 23 years of existence this year, with children of all ages uniting their love for reading.

According to, the "main aim" of the day in the UK and Ireland is "to encourage children to explore the pleasures reading, by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own".

The eponymous charity typically sends resource packs to schools and nurseries for different age ranges, containing activities ideas and information about how you can be part of World Book Day.
