We will be celebrating World Book Day on 3 March 2022, given it's such a great event and also to help celebrate their 25th anniversary, we thought we'd share some of our current family favourite reads and tell you how we're getting involved in the day.
Clem's top read: The Wonkey Donkey
The Wonky Donkey is a hilarious children's book, and song written by Craig Smith. The book is based upon a song that Smith wrote in 2005 after hearing the joke "What do you call a donkey with three legs? - A wonky donkey".
Our whole family can't help but laugh when reading this book, egging each-other on to make the silliest voices whilst reading out the punchlines! We're sure you'll love it too... Hee-Haw!
What is World Book Day?
In the words of the organisers, "Our mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own. Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income. We want to see more children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, with a life-long habit of reading for pleasure and the improved life chances this brings them."
Clem's top read: The Tiger Who Came to Tea
The Tiger Who Came to Tea is written and illustrated by Judith Kerr and aimed at 2-5 year olds.
We love the illustrations inside the book and enjoy using our Peruvian finger puppets whilst reading all about the greedy Tiger!
How is Cheekymono supporting World Book Day?
World Book Day has been designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading and is marked in over 100 countries around the globe.
To help support this mission, we have donated £10 to help fund the national book token campaign and bring the magic of books to children and young people everywhere.
