World Book Day - Live Lesson

Share a story with us and help save the fate of World Book Day itself!

Children of the UK - we need your help! The Anti-Word League has launched a super-evil plan to steal all of the words from our books, and only your combined efforts can help us save books everywhere.

Teachers, watch the World Book Day Live Lesson, hosted by CBBC's Ben Shires, designed to tie in with the curriculum for English and literacy at KS2/2nd Level. Students are challenged to share stories and complete fun reading and writing activities in order to help Ben save World Book Day.

Joining us at the Live Lesson were famous World Book Day authors and illustrators Malorie Blackman, Rob Biddulph and Cressida Cowell, who were there to answer questions from pupils all across the country.
