Celebrate World Book Day with our recommended reads for young people!
It’s World Book Day 2021 and Childnet have some fantastic, recommended reading for primary-aged children.
Celebrated in more than 100 countries around the world, and led by UNESCO, World Book Day aims to change lives through a love of books and shared reading. The mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.
On the Internet
‘On the internet’ is a learning-to-read book for children aged 4 and above. It has been written for children to read, with the help of their parents, carers or teachers when needed.
There is no ‘right’ or ‘expected’ number of words for children to read in this book, and their interaction will be based entirely on their ability. There are puzzles after the story, which parents, carers or teachers can help to read the instructions for.
The Digiduck Stories
The Digiduck collection of stories has been created specifically to help parents, carers and teachers educate children aged 3-7 about online safety. The series includes ebooks, PDFs, a poster and an interactive app.
Follow Digiduck and his pals in these stories of friendship, responsibility and critical thinking online.
Meanwhile, in Digiduck’s Famous Friend, Digiduck and his classmates are set the task of finding out who their special guest will be at school. Through chatting online and asking questions they try to decide who the mystery guest is.
Whatever children choose to read today, we hope they have a wonderful World Book Day – and it helps them to develop a lifelong habit of reading for pleasure. Happy World Book Day!
