We love sharing stories all year round, not just on World Book Day and we know you and the children in your nursery/pre-school do, too. Not only is it fun, relaxing and boosts wellbeing for everyone involved, but it can also make a huge difference to a child’s future to share a story for just 10 minutes a day, helping to create readers for life.

Is your nursery/pre-school full of Reading Stars? We would love to see BIG, BOLD and BRIGHT displays featuring children sharing stories with their loved ones from breakfast until bedtime, in nurseries and pre-schools across the country. It can be anywhere at any time − on the bus, in a park, on the sofa and with whomever they love to share stories with.

Enter our Share A Story Reading Stars competition now and your nursery/pre-school could win the top 25 picture books to share, as voted by the nation.


Share a snap of your displays with us at hi@worldbookday.com  for the chance to win the top 25 picture books to share (https://www.worldbookday.com/ideas/100-stories-to-share/picture-books/?dm_i=35S3,UZHR,4G00AR,37Q3B,1).

DEADLINE EXTENDED − to give you more time to create your displays we have extended the deadline until 17 May 2019

We can’t wait to see your displays. Good luck!
