World Book Day 2021

World Book Day is one of the highlights of the year at Noadswood. We love the annual celebration of authors, illustrators, books and the joy of reading. While this year may be slightly different due to lockdown, we have plenty of ideas of how to celebrate a very 2021 World Book Day on 4 March.
