Accessible Copies of World Book Day Titles Available from RNIB

Children across the UK will be exploring the wonderful world of reading next week on World Book Day®.

And the Royal National Institute of Blind people (RNIB) wants to make sure that children with vision impairments can celebrate the power of reading alongside their sighted peers.

World Book Day® on March 7 aims to encourage reading for pleasure, especially because it is the biggest indicator of a child’s future success in life. It also aims to make sure every child can have a book of their own to read.

For 2024, the theme is ‘Read Your Way’, and children are being encouraged to read any way they like to, whether it be out loud, in their heads, a sentence, a chapter or a page.

Which is why the RNIB Library has accessible versions of all of this year’s World Book Day UK titles available in audio and braille.

This year’s range of books provides adventure, mystery and laughter and titles include Elmer And The Patchwork Story by David McKee, Loki: Tales Of A Bad God by Louie Stowell and The Doomsday Date by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé.

There’s something to suit beginner readers right through to confident book lovers.

Children can have their very own World Book Day® copy to keep, in either braille or CD.

The book can be ordered in their preferred format from RNIB’s Helpline on 0303 123 999. They are also all available to download in audio and braille from RNIB Reading services at
