World Book Day was created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995 as a worldwide celebration of books and reading. It is marked in over 100 countries around the globe. The first World Book Day in the UK and Ireland took place in 1997 to encourage young people to discover the pleasure of reading. This year is the 25th year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 3rd March 2022, children of all ages will come together to share the joy of reading for pleasure.
As part of World Book Day two of our Jersey Bat Group members have recorded themselves reading from two batty books!
We hope you enjoy listening to Jane and Liz, and learn some wonderful bat facts.
