Children's Book Week
Illustration by Al Murphy
Together, we can inspire children everywhere to love reading
Children's Book Week 2016 ran from 31 October to 4 November 2016.
Every year, we are joined by schools, libraries, children and their parents to celebrate books and reading for pleasure during Children's Book Week.
After all, children who love reading do better at school and are happier, healthier and more resilient.
