World Book Day 2011 is just over four weeks away - it takes place on 3rd March. The website is well worth visiting for loads of activities, ideas and resources. There is a new site for teens and secondary school pupils with details of creative writing, reviewing, photo-captioning and blogging competitions for pupils and students over 11 years. Videos, relevant links, reading recommendations and random trivia are also part of the package.
There is also a new Professionals' Portal which has been filled with content appropriate to classroom and library activities and is easily accessible via a simple registration process.
Films of authors and actors including Bernard Cribbins, Ramona Marquez, Devon Anderson and Kris Marshall reading extracts of the special £1 Books will be available to view from the site from Monday 28th February.
