World book Day 2011 is on Thursday March 3rd. Over the last 13 years World Book Day has become firmly established as Ireland’s biggest annual event promoting the enjoyment of books and reading. The main aim is to encourage children to explore the pleasure of books and reading by providing them with an opportunity to have a book of their own. Your school should have received World Book Day Tokens to distribute to the pupils in school. Each token is worth €1.50. This token can be used to purchase special World Book Day books or to be redeemed against the cost of any other book in your local booksellers.
In Ireland, O’Brien Press have produced a dual language flipper book especially for World Book Day. “Danny’s Smelly Toothbrush” and “Fiacla Mhamó” are written by Irish author Brianóg Brady Dawson. They feature the hugely popular character Danny Brown and his hilarious antics.
