A day to celebrate the joy of children’s books and literature, children across the country attend school dressed up as their favourite character from a book. If you’re in the city with the kids, today is a great day to visit some of the big bookshops in central London.

Bookshops up and down the UK will be holding special events with activities, people in costumes, special offers and games. It’s a brilliant day for kids with wild imaginations to get inspired about reading.
