Hi Parents/Carers,

World Book Day is fast approaching and we can’t wait to celebrate at William Patten on Friday 3rd March!

As part of the day we will be hosting a book swap. Here is what you need to do:

  1. Support your child to select an old book that they enjoyed reading and are happy to give away.
  2. Your child (or you) should write a little message inside  – or attached by paperclip – to tell the book’s future owner what they will love about it (examples attached).
  3. Please bring in your book as soon as possible, prior to the 3rd of March.
  4. On World Book Day (3.3.23), every child will browse the selection of preloved books and select one to keep.

We think this is a beautiful way to share our love of reading while also taking care of the planet!

We understand that some children may not be able to bring in a book to give away. We will still make sure every child is given a book to take home on the day!
Therefore, if you have more than one book that you can donate to the event, these will be gladly received!

Thank you in advance for helping make this idea a reality,

Maya Domb
