World Book Day top nonfiction for children 2023

by Suswati Basu

Marked in over 100 countries across the globe, World Book Day is a UNESCO initiative that aims to celebrate both books and reading, hence we are introducing some of the top nonfiction reads for children in 2023. This year’s theme emphasises making World Book Day yours as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the event.

In the UK and Ireland, National Book Tokens are sent out so that kids can find a book of their very own something to unlock the power of their minds. This is in light of an increasing prevalence on digital screens.

In schools across the country, kids will be dressing up as their favourite characters from books. The main aim of the day is to encourage children to explore different genres and develop a passion for reading. There are also so many benefits for children’s academic and personal development. It can help to expand vocabulary, improve empathy, and increase concentration.

How to get World Book Day nonfiction Β£1 books?

The Β£1/€1.50 books are an important part of the World Book Day mission to promote reading for pleasure by offering children and young people the opportunity to choose and own a book. The organisation works with publishers and children to create a list that appeals to a wide range of interests.

Through schools, nurseries, magazines, and partners, 50 million Β£1/€1.50 tokens are distributed to children and young people before World Book Day so they can experience choosing one of these books for free from their nearest bookseller! The book tokens are valid from Thursday 16 February to Sunday 26 March 2023.
