Here at Grimm & Co, we are all about books and literacy, so when it comes round to World Book Day, we love to celebrate!

World Book Day is a charity that encourages reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.  We do the same with our Forgotten Library!

Our creative team have been looking at some of their favourite books, and have created activities around these to share with you all.  They are suitable for all, and we hope you enjoy them!

Iron Man

The Arrival
