World Book Day 2021 - What Will It Look Like?

Clown Logo of Karnival Costumes
With more and more children being home-schooled World Book Day 2021 will be celebrated a little differently. With the majority of school children being away from the classroom it will be more of an effort to encourage the celebration of reading.  Each year, parents and teachers join forces and come together to pass on the wonder of reading and storytelling. On World Book Day children are encouraged to come into school dressed up as their favourite characters – with many teachers joining in and taking part in the fun too. Through a wonderful literacy scheme kids are also given tokens for free books and the school day itself may be structured around World Book Day inspired activities and lessons.
With all of the uncertainty through the last 12 months, you may be wondering when World Book Day is? World Book Day 2021 falls on Thursday, March 4th this year – just a few days before the official return to full schooling.

Always held, in the UK at least, on the first Thursday of March and in 2021 the celebration of reading marks it’s 24th year. World Book Day is celebrated in over 100 countries around the world, however, not all countries celebrate the day on the same date as the UK.

The big question has to be; what will happen this year and will Covid affect World Book Day? Even though schools are not set to return until March 8th, World Book Day will still go ahead on March 4th as planned. But, we’re sure that many schools will be planning for the day to be properly celebrated at some point given its importance on bring reading and interactive play into the classroom. The day itself on March 4th will be based more on the true purpose – a celebration of books and imagination – and will be largely unaffected by lockdown restrictions. It will just mean children will be celebrating at home with their families rather than in school with their friends and teachers.
As in previous years the charity, along with National Book Tokens Ltd, plan to deliver over 15 million £1 book tokens to children across the country – aiming for one for nearly every child under the age of 18 in the country. These £1 book tokens can be exchanged for a range of limited edition books written for the day, or used towards the cost of a full-price book. In addition, they also provide resources on their website for schools of all levels and nurseries. From colouring sheets, to show and tell cards there are hundreds of World Book Day resources available. And here at Karnival Costumes we’ve a huge selection of fancy dress and dress-up ideas to go along with your own 2021 World Book Day celebrations.
