In this digital age it is vitally important that we share stories with children of all ages, as this can have a massive impact on their future and helps to create readers for life. Just 10 minutes a day, at any time from breakfast till bedtime – in the bath, at breakfast, on the bus – is a fun habit that everyone involved will enjoy. Our sessions will be great fun and will hopefully inspire children to pick up, and get lost in, a book! We believe everyone should be given the opportunity to enjoy reading, or being read to, so the event is a perfect way to celebrate a day that is dedicated to a love of stories. 

PLUS, World Book Day is asking EVERYONE to help them to Share a Million Stories throughout World Book Day month (27th February - 29th March) – get your school, nursery or family involved and you could win brilliant booky prizes. Register now.

In advance of the day, why not do your bit for the planet and save money at the same time with our costume swap! Simply bring along a clean, gently used costume to the Ask Me Point and swap it for another donated costume. If you already have a costume donations are still gratefully received and if you don’t have one to donate you are still welcome to come and collect one.

Plus, be on the lookout for our hidden books to enjoy and pass on!
