World Book Day is such an exciting event if you have children (perhaps even if you dont!). I don't remember it being such a popular day when I was a child! I love the enthusiasm and excitement that is poured into making this day special. Dressing up, purchasing new books & even exchanging old books! It's a great way to get children inspired & happy to read books. If you're not celebrating World Book Day, here's 5 fab reasons why you should be!
Reading with your children is such an important thing to do. Not only does it allow you to bond, it helps stimulate their imagination and understanding of the world. It helps their language skills, listening skills and reading abilities. I firmly believe that we should read to children, even when they are really young, and continue to read aloud together, even when they are old enough to read by themselves.
My little ones aren't old enough to celebrate World Book Day at their school or nursery, but that doesn't mean we cant celebrate it at home! We read together every single night before bed. I pick a book to read, and they get to choose another.
We were given the opportunity to review a couple of books from Scholastic's World Book Day selection, and I couldn't say no. There are so many fantastic books to choose from! Ranging from 0-13+, there's sure to be the perfect book for you or your child! There's the latest books, old classics, board books and even packs.
(If your children received £1 World Book Day tokens, these can be used when shopping from this book selection!)
We chose to review a pack of Nick Sharratt books, and I am so glad we did. I remember these books from my childhood, and I am so happy to share them with my little ones. Nick Sharratt has such a brilliant style of books, with bright illustrations, funny stories and even lift the flaps.
Don't Put Your Finger In The Jelly, Nelly used to be one of my favourites. Lots of fun and unexpected outcomes if you've never read it before.
In the pack we also received 'Octopus Socktopus' which was the one I had never read before. I love reading new books as much as my little ones!
'Fancy Dress Jungle' is a really fun book too. Animals wearing fancy dress costumes?! Children will love it! Guessing games, and lift the flaps too!
The last book we received is called 'Ketchup On Your Cornflakes'. The same bright illustrations and funny questions as before, although this one is slightly different as it is a split page book. Allowing children to create hilarious food concoctions, will ensure they will be giggling away.
I am such a big fan of Nick Sharratt books, and I am very pleased that my little ones can now enjoy them too. Bright colours, silly made up words, rhyming and funny animals - what more could you want in a children's book?
Have you celebrated World Book Day this year?
