World Book Day

Posted by Emily Smith on


Thursday is World Book Day across the UK. It may be a dreaded day of fancy dress nightmares for most, but it's also a celebration of writing, illustration and imagination that encourages creativity and freedom in our kids. We love the classics, such as Roald Dahl, Beatrix Potter, Shirley Hughes, Julia Donaldson, and Topsy and Tim, and nowadays there's even more to choose from. Children's books are bright, exciting and often magical escapes for our kids, so finding lots to read is essential. Thankfully, there's a few websites we love which supply lots of great books perfect for bedtime stories: Small Print Online 'The home of captivating storytelling', Small Print is a family-run online store passionate about selling imaginative and creative books...
