The children are invited to create their own book cover for a story they have always wanted to write. These will then be displayed in the school.

In the tradition of Book Week, all children will receive a €1.50 book token which they can either redeem fully against a World Book Day book or use as part payment against any of the other books for sale.
During their visit to the bookshop, the children will be able to ‘reserve’ books which parents can then collect & pay for at collection.
