World Book Day

By Evie B and Lily K, BBC Young Reporters

World Book Day is the biggest celebration of its kind, taking place on Thursday 7th March 2019. This year it is celebrating its 22nd anniversary. The idea of World Book Day is that everyone can have a book and enjoy reading together. A special cause.

Taking place in 100 countries around the world, most schools are given the opportunity to take part in the design-a-book-token competition. The prizes are definitely worth it! Students are also given a free book token to use in shops (which allows them to choose either a free book or a pound off a book of their choice).

A teacher at Trinity Academy, Mrs Linsdell who is the second in the English department, was interviewed on her thoughts.

“I think that World Book Day is a great way to send out the message of how important reading is,” she said.

“My favourite book is The Lord of the Rings because I am interested in that type of genre. Although it is difficult to read I would undoubtedly recommend it.”

“I guess that I do enjoy reading and it is very important to read. Not just in general but for me to become an English teacher it was also necessary for that too.”
