Cassie Chadderton, chief executive of World Book Day, said: “Year on year, the evidence grows that World Book Day is having a positive impact on the reading behaviour of our children and young people. By putting more books directly into the hands of children and young people and, at the same time, encouraging everyone, everywhere to get into the habit of sharing stories regularly, World Book Day is helping create readers for life.”
