What is World Book Day?

World Book Day is an annual event which celebrates the uniting love of books around the world and sees people dress up as characters from their favourite reads.

This UNESCO initiative is marked in over 100 countries around the globe and aims to celebrate books and reading, particularly among children.

National Book Tokens are usually sent out in the UK and Ireland to allow children to choose their own book to read and unlock their imaginations.
