World Book Day is all about celebrating the beauty and magic of books and, most importantly, of reading. Organised by UNESCO, it is marked in more than 100 countries around the world.
On 1 March 2018, children all over the world will be encouraged to pick up a book and discover the wonders waiting inside.
On the 21st year of World Book Day, 15 million £1 book tokens will be given to children and young people in the UK and Ireland. With these £1 tokens, they can choose one of the 10 dedicated World Book Day titles to read - that's one for nearly every child under 18 in the country!
Reading can open up a world of possibilities and enhance the imagination, which is why it is so important for every child (and adult) to be able to enjoy the books of their choice.
We are celebrating this year by making the 10 books available in braille and audio for free! This means that children and young people do not need a £1 token to read the following titles. They can be accessed through the RNIB Online Shop or by contacting the RNIB Helpline on 0303 123 9999 or email@example.com. Giant print versions of these titles are available from Guide Dogs.
All 10 books will be availble from 22 February 2018.
