1. Send a Story Around the World
This is based on the simple concept of one story being written by many. You could start with a story about something your children will recognise and then send it on to a friend to add their touch. How exciting would it be for your children to see the story grow and expand as more people get involved. That would be a real keepsake!
2. Focus on Books at Bedtime
I know some nights the last thing we feel like doing is reading, especially when I have read the same book so many times I know it by heart. Funny how we never get tired of our favourite books (even now I reread my favourites). If that is your problem, now is the perfect time to look at adding to your library. I have attached a list of those books which were new releases in 2017 and won awards.
3. Organise a Book Drive
We all have books which our children never chose to read. Why not organise a book drive where unwanted books are collected and donated to local libraries or charities. Nothing feels better than clearing our shelves and sharing the love of reading with others who are less fortunate.
I hope this list gives you some alternatives, so that you and your children have a memorable world book day
