If you have a book group, or just enjoy discussing books with friends, Meet Talk Give is for you. It’s as simple as getting everyone together to talk about your chosen book, and taking a small donation to recognise World Book Day. Just £2 is enough to pay for a book to get to Africa, and it makes a huge difference. Libraries can also take part in Meet Talk Give. Just follow our easy advice and instructions.
Alternatively you could just pick up one of the 10 new books published in the Quick Reads series. A donation goes from the sale of each one to World Book Day.
You could win a complete DK library when your school takes part in the National Sponsored ABC Fact Find!
Using the World Book Day poster, your pupils build themselves a mini-encyclopedia of the countries which stand to benefit from Book Aid International’s support. They decorate it, add facts and more, and receive sponsorship for their efforts. You’ll find the poster and sponsorship forms on the Book Aid International site. Enter your best encyclopedia into our prize draw, and you could win that DK library worth £200 for your school!
If your nursery or toddler fancies in on the World Book Day action, why not get them to take part in our Miffy colouring competition? With every amount you raise over £20, you’ll receive some free Miffy books!
So there truly is something for everyone to take part in for World Book Day. Every book we ship really does make a difference, so thank you for your support!
