World Book Day at Paintpots Nurseries Manchester

March 21, 2019

World Book Day is a registered charity whose aim is to provide every child and young person with a book of their own. It is the largest celebration of its kind, elected by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration and is marked in over 100 countries all over the world. It’s a celebration of books, authors, illustrators and most importantly, it’s a celebration of reading.

On Thursday 7th March 2019, it was the 22nd year there has been a World Book Day, and children and adults of all ages came together to appreciate reading. Here at Paintpots Manchester we had all kinds of different characters attend nursery from Paddington Bear and the Hungry Caterpillar to Little Red Riding Hood. We had fun all day by: creating and colouring our own book marks for when we get our new books with our £1.00 book tokens, reading a variety of our favourite stories with our friends, coloured pictures of our favourite story characters, made our own picture books and enjoyed looking at books in different languages, especially Indian, as we are celebrating our country of the month India.

The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to provide children with the opportunity to have a book of their own, to encourage them to explore the enjoyment of books and reading. Schools, nurseries and secondary schools that registered to partake, received packs of Book Tokens and age-ranged World Book Day Resource Packs (age-ranged into Nursery/Pre-School, Primary and Secondary) full of ideas and activities, display materials and more information about how to get involved in World Book Day.

Children can take their book tokens to a local bookseller and use it to pick one of TWELVE (exclusive, new and completely free) books. Or, if they’d prefer, they can use it to get £1.00 off any book or audio book costing over £2.99 at a participating bookshop.

We have discussed the importance of reading from a baby onwards in a previous Blog, and here at Paintpots Manchester we take reading seriously and encourage all parents to join in reading with their children at all ages.

Sent my step-son here for over 2 years before he started school. Perfect location, great staff and most importantly, he loved it. Only issue was the refurbishment of the building taking place, but they even managed to use that as a learning experience and the kids all loved the builders and diggers opposite!!read more

I sent my child to this Nursery after having sent his 2 older siblings. I work in the City Centre and they love the place, they all did. There are staff that have been there for over 10 years, location is fantastic and whilst the recent renovation works have not been ideal, it hasn't affected the care one bit. Somehow, they even find a way to make activities that involve the construction materials. Can't recommend highly enough!!read more
