Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, is supporting World Book Day’s 25th anniversary taking place on Thursday 3rd March 2022.
Each year, World Book Day creates bespoke £1 books for children and young adults across the UK and Ireland. Through World Book Day, every child across Denton and Reddish will be given a £1 book token, which they can to a book or a supermarket to get their free World Book Day book.
World Book Day aims to see more children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, given the life-long habit of reading for pleasure that will improve their life chances.
Gwynne, who attended a Parliamentary event earlier this week to mark the 25th anniversary, said:
“It’s such a pleasure to support World Book Day in its 25th year. Reading is so important, and every child and young adult deserves to be given the opportunity to develop a life long passion for it.
As an avid reader myself, I was delighted to get out and about in Parliament, and flick through the brilliant selection of new £1 world book day books. I’m so pleased that children and young people across Denton and Reddish will be given the opportunity to pick their own new book for free. A personal favourite of mine was Jemima The Pig And The 127 Acorns by Michael Morpurgo”
