Through World Book Day, every child in Ashfield and Eastwood will be given a £1 book token, which they can take to a bookshop or supermarket to get their free World Book Day book.

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.
