Thursday 5th March is World Book Day and all across the UK, schools and libraries will be holding events to encourage kids to get reading. England International and children’s author Frank Lampard will be celebrating books for kids by hosting a special live streamed event from a school in Manchester in front of an audience of 240 children.

Man City midfielder Frank, author of Frankie’s Magic Football series and ambassador of the National Literacy Trust, kicks off his session at 2.15pm. For more information and to sign up for free, go to www.childrensauthorslive.com for details.

World Book Day is a brilliant excuse to get kids dressed up as their favourite characters from the world of literature. If your brood can’t face another year togged up as Harry Potter or Alice in Wonderland, don’t panic. For tips on book character costumes ideas, information about the special World Book Day reads that cost just £1, and events happening in your area, go to the Book Day hub for all the answers to your World Book Day worries.
