AR quizzes for the World Book Day books are live!
By Kerry McGuire, Assistant Editor
Happy World Book Day, customers!
We are delighted to announce that all twelve of the £1 World Book Day 2019 books – plus one which is only available in Ireland – are now available to quiz on Accelerated Reader. Quiz information is listed below.
Amazingly, more than 15 million World Book Day tokens are expected to be distributed to children and young people all over the UK and Ireland today. They can swap their token for one of the exclusive World Book Day books, or put their token towards buying a full-priced book (or audio book) of their choice.
There is a great selection of books for all ages and reading levels this year, including two picture books and a new Noughts and Crosses story from Malorie Blackman! And fans of the Wimpy Kid stories will be delighted to hear from Greg’s best friend, Rowley Jefferson, in Jeff Kinney’s newest story.
Our writers and editors particularly enjoyed Bad Mermaids this year – I heard giggles coming from all around the Content department!
On an accessibility note: are there blind or partially-sighted children at your school? The £1 books are available in braille, large print and audio via the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) and Guide Dogs. Check out the RNIB website for more information.
