World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world. – World Book Day
So far one aspect of this project that I’ve really enjoyed has been the variety of events that I’ve covered. There’s been quite a few things that I’ve not been able to get to due to my own work commitments but the engagements that I’ve attended with Nuala have been fantastic. Its really given me an outlook on things that are happening around the city that I never knew about.
One such event was World Book Day. I have to confess that its been a long time since I’ve sat down to read. I buy books then never make time to sit down and get through them.
Nuala started her World Book Day activities by attending Park Lodge Primary School just off the Antrim Road in Belfast. To celebrate the students read from famous books, sang songs and even put on a bit of theatre.
After the main assembly service with the junior school Nuala joined one of the junior classes in their room for a reading session. I was super impressed with the choice of book Nuala settled on as it was all based around teaching young children sign language through reading. Its certainly something as a young child I was I was taught!
