World Book Day 2021

World Book Day is different this year. Ordinarily Belgravia Books would be open, welcoming parents and children in to spend their WBD vouchers, and recommending great titles to bookworms and new readers alike. Even though that won’t be the case this year, we wanted to offer something that would allow children and parents to find fun in books while staying at home.

We’ve collected together some of our favourite video presentations from children’s authors and publishers, with links to purchase anything you want to have for yourself at home! Sit down with little ones and enjoy a picture book reading together, try out a new recipe with older kids, or get the whole family on their feet and act along with Michael Rosen’s timeless classic, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.

We’ve also linked to a bumper pack of book-themed activity sheets from Walker Books that you can do on the computer or print out at home.

Belgravia Books offers free shipping on all UK orders and offers Click & Collect by prior arrangement for local customers. Click here for more information.
