The event is a celebration of um curso em milagres retiro online, and attempts to get more children reading books than there currently are. With technology moving so fast, it’s becoming more normal for children to get all of their learning from videos and tests on the internet, rendering books completely useless. The advantage of this is that learning can be quickly adapted to changing curriculums, but the downside is books are never really used, and important novels are never even touched by the latest generations.
World Book Day provides children with the chance to have their own book, some at no cost at all. National Book tokens Ltd, publishers and booksellers have all clubbed together to provide children with the ability to get their own book with nothing more than a token given to them by their school. Usually the free books are a lot shorter and aimed at very young children, but in all participating book stores older children can get a pound off of any book they want that costs more than three pounds. The enticement of money off a book might be the persuading factor for some children as to whether or not they will buy a book, and that book could get them back into reading.
Many more schools are beginning to participate in this celebration of literature, and authors from around the country are even visiting schools to give talks on their story and what they did to get where they are for any aspiring writers. Schools apply for resources from the World Book Day organisation and then they can use these resources to advertise what they’ll be doing for World book Day, whether it’s simply handing out tokens for children to use outside of school, or holding assemblies with speakers for all children to get involved in and get their book from.
Some schools organise for their pupils to dress up in fancy dress for the day. The costumes pupils wear need to be themed after characters from their favourite books, and as a result there can be a lot of magicians, but there is also a welcome range of Victorian era orphans and animals as well. All of these celebrations are simply the beginning of what World Book Day has to offer to children, and as it grows more and more people will hold onto reading books over reading information from the internet, keeping an art form alive which would otherwise be extinguished, and encouraging further learning in children.
