Last year, over 1,000 schools like yours raised an astonishing £140,000 – that’s enough to send 70,000 books to people around the world who need them. Many more use dour resources on World Book Day to enrich their celebrations. This year, we hope your school will also choose to take part! If you have any questions or if we can help, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

We would like to thank Pearson and Project Literacy for funding the creation of our school’s pack and supporting our World Book Day fundraising activities.

Dress up and change lives

One great way to make us part of your World Book Day activities is by asking your pupils to dress up as a favourite character and donate £1 so that we can introduce other readers around the world to the story they love. Pupils can make use of our 43 costume guides to make the most of their dress up. There are costumes for all ages, and many can be assembled using common house-hold items.

Any questions?

We would love to help you make us part of your World Book Day celebrations. If we can provide any support, please:

  • Email Worldbookday@bookaid.org
  • Call 020 7733 3577
