In celebration of World Book Day, children and families can go along to the Share a Story pod on Level 2 of The Word.
Children and families can come along to share their favourite story or create a character profile using activity sheets. Once you're done the Library staff will then be able to fix them to the walls. The pod is also a great place for children and families to pick out their favourite books from the library and read them together. From popular books such as Harry Potter and stories by Roald Dahl to classic children's books like We're Going on a Bear Hunt or The Tiger Who Came to Tea, there's so many books to choose from in the Library!
The activity sheets are available in the pod or you can fill them out in your own time and bring them along to be displayed, resources are provided by World Book Day and are available here:
