Happy #WorldBookDay from Special Collections!

It’s #WorldBookDay: a day to celebrate everything book and reading related, from authors to illustrators to publishers…

Since 1995, the first Thursday in March has been celebrated as World Book Day, with school children across the UK being given book vouchers and many given the opportunity to go into school dressed as their favourite character from a book.

On this day of celebration we thought we would bring you a few highlights from our Ladybird and Children’s Collections.  Enjoy!
