World Book Day has been changing children’s lives by encouraging a love of books and reading for 25 years. Reading for pleasure makes an enormous impact on a child’s future, whether that’s their educational success, well-being or mental health.
World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading. The mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own. Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income.
Lee Anderson MP said: “It is a pleasure to support World Book Day in its 25th year.
"It is so important that every child and young adult in Ashfield and Eastwood has the opportunity to have a book of their own that they have chosen for themselves, and I am delighted to celebrate my own love of reading through the World Book Day campaign.”
