To get a better understanding of what World Book Day means to particular individuals who have always played an active role in celebrating this literary day, in its twenty fifth year I spoke to local author, former teacher and storyteller with Little Lamb Tales Jude Lennon. Jude has been actively involved with ourselves at Granby Toxteth Development Trust being involved at a number of community events and donated a number of Builder Book resources which we are now engaged, working alongside with a number of local primary schools.
World Book Day is a wonderful day to remind us of the importance of books and the joy they can bring, Its not about the costumes (although they are fun), it's about the stories we love and how they make us feel when we read them. It's about escaping into different worlds full of new characters and exciting adventures. As a storyteller every day is World Book Day for me an I wish for all the children to feel the same way about the written word as I do.
