Thursday March 5th 2020 is World Book Day and this year the focus is on sharing stories.
Unfortunately reading for pleasure is on the decline. Did you know that
: only 29% of children (0-13) read for pleasure daily?
: only 56% of 3-4 year olds are read to by their guardians/parents daily or nearly daily?
: fewer than 19% of 8-10 year olds are read to daily or nearly every day?
Let’s use this World Book Day to celebrate and promote a love of reading. Here is a list of popular books, as recommended by Children’s Books Ireland (CBI). CBI Recommended Reads
Students will be engaging in a variety of activities to mark this day, from reading with their buddies to sharing their favourite books with their classmates.
We also have a competition running in school and would love students to get involved.
