World Book Day takes place on Thursday 7 March and we hope you’ll join us to celebrate. We are celebrating World Book Day this year at Jubilee because we support the charity’s mission to change lives through a love of books and reading.

Dressing up or bringing books into school can be a big part of World Book Day. This year we are aware that the cost of living crisis might make this difficult for some families, so we are doing things a bit differently!

Instead of coming in costume, we will:
1. Be making spoon puppets of the children’s favourite characters. We can’t wait to see what the children’s creativity unleashes and to meet all of the spoon characters. How many will you recognise?

2. Invite children to wear their pyjamas.

Coming into setting to read to them.

Access to books
1. We’ll also be hosting a very special book swap. Send your child into school with any unwanted books.

2. Getting a free £1/€1.50 book for your child is easy – simply take your £1/€1.50 book token to your nearest bookseller and swap it for a World Book Day £1/€1.50 book OR use it to get £1/€1.50 off any ANY book or audiobook costing £2.99/€3.99 or more. You can find your nearest bookseller at

We’re very much looking forward to celebrating World Book Day, which could not happen without the support of parents and carers – thank you.
