There are few pleasures in life that equal reading a good book! This World Book Day, we wanted to pass on our love for books!

Books are the magic that we can gift ourselves and others.

In an age where we are distracted by screens all around us- television, mobile, computers- let’s take some time to put down our screens and pick up a book.

World Book Day is also perfect time to introduce children to the world of books. Books help children develop an imagination that goes beyond what is possible to dream of achieving  the impossible, to develop empathy by understanding diverse and different characters and seeing things through their perspective, to acquire a rich vocabulary, to expand knowledge and to travel to worlds beyond our own.
