Hard to believe, but World Book Day turns 20 this year! Designated by UNESCO as an international celebration of authors, books, artists – and above all, developing a love of reading among children the world over – World Book Day has become a beloved tradition for schoolchildren and adults alike.
Did you know Littlewoods offer a variety of books online? From cookbooks to colouring books to bedtime stories, there is something for everyone in the family. For instance, you may know David Walliams from his comedies and panel shows, but to kids, he’s best known as a beloved author. The newest comic adventure from David is called The Midnight Gang and it’s the thrilling and hilarious romp your kids have been waiting for.
For the artistically inclined, colouring books are bigger than ever. We love this take on Beauty and the Beast, an enchanting collection of drawings depicting the timeless fairytale. Kids will love colouring in the well-known characters and magical settings, while adults will appreciate the incredible illustrations, which were inspired by the Victorian ‘Arts & Crafts movement’. It’s a wonderful activity to share with children, as well as a great way to de-stress after a hectic day!
Could your commitment to your New Year’s fitness goals do with a boost? Or are you ready to take your already-healthy lifestyle to the next level? Combine World Book Day with a focus on good health, and take inspiration from ‘The Body Coach’ himself, Joe Wicks. Lean in 15: The Sustain Plan features hundreds of delicious, nutritious recipes, along with four workout plans, to help get you back on track and see sustainable results.
Serious readers take note: why not step it up a gear and go digital! The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite holds all the books you could possibly want on one tablet. This lightweight wonder is wi-fi enabled, so you can download books to your heart’s content while on the go, and the HD screen with adjustable brightness feature makes it easy to read under just about any lighting.
And finally, some might say their favourite book is the Apple MacBook. This 12” model, available in gorgeous gold, gives you the full-size Apple experience in a lightweight, stylish notebook. And with the optional MS Office 365 suite, you can write your own books!
