Today is World Book day!
This is the 17th year there’s been a World Book Day. World Book Day was designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and is marked in over 100 countries around the globe. A main aim of World Book Day is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading.

I was delighted to see Fun with the Worst Witch by Jill Murphy on the list as The Worst Witch was one of my favourite childhood books!
Little House on the Prairie and the Little House Series was also a huge favourite of mine and I still read them now.
One of my favourite quotes is from the author of the Little House books Laura Ingalls Wilder.
“The real things haven’t changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.”
―Laura Ingalls Wilder
