It’s World Book Day – March 5, 2009

In Australia, where we live, World Book Day isn’t really that well known.

In our schools we have events such as School Libraries Day, Children’s Book Week, Literacy Week, Education Week, Numeracy Week etc, etc.

So today on World Book Day, stop for 5 minutes and read a book, share it with someone else and enjoy the music of words and the places the narrative takes you…

Take a look at the following link from the UK World Book Day site  http://www.worldbookday.com/for_schools_and_children.asp
