World Book Day – Mitchy Titch- Around the World

World Book Day – Mitchy Titch- Around the World

Mitchy Titch award winning baby and children’s yoga classes take families on an adventure through yoga poses and flows, stories and games – so what does this have to do with World Book Day I hear you ask?

Well… proud owner of Mitchy Titch, Avril O’Brien has taken her passion for yoga and created an exciting bestselling children’s book- ‘Mitchy Titch- All Around the World’, featuring beautiful illustrations by Helen Robinson MA.

The story takes you on an adventure as Mitchy and his friends head off on a trip ‘All Around the World’ having lots of fun practicing yoga poses to help build confidence and inner strength.

As you take each step on the Mitchy Titchy journey you have catchy rhyming phrases keeping little ones engaged alongside beautifully illustrated yoga poses for the whole family to try.

Avril said:

“I have loved yoga all my life and it has helped me through many a stressful day. I love my job with a passion and the best part of all, I get to spend my days with beautiful babies and children. So, I created Mitchy Titch- All Around the World to share my love of yoga with all my little yogis”.

Yoga can be an excellent form of relaxation for children, guiding them through controlled breathing, clearing your mind and focusing on your body. Combining this with a story can help children stay engaged and have lots of fun too.

Mitchy Titch Around the World is one World Book Day activity you will want to keep coming back to, again and again.

World Book Day Kids Activities with Reading Eggs

Need some fresh ideas for World Book Day this year? We’ve got you covered! Why not start out by asking your child to pick one of their favourite stories, and after you’ve finished reading it together try:

1. Re-enacting the story

Children love dramatic play, and when your child acts out or retells the stories you’ve read together, they’re demonstrating and enhancing their comprehension skills – an essential part of learning to read. Ask your child to act out a story in the right order and take on different roles. This will help them gain an understanding of narrative structure, and consider how different characters have different personalities and motivations.

2. Asking your child to draw what they’ve read

After reading a book, ask your child to draw a picture to depict the story and its main characters. Practice doing this with books which include little or no illustrations. This is a fun and creative way for them to think about what they’ve just read and & retell a story in their own way.

For more World Book Day activities you can do at home including hundreds of exciting reading games, over 2500 e-books to choose from for every reading ability and self-paced one-on one lessons that help teach your child how to read, try a 30-Day FREE Trial of Reading Eggs.

About Reading Eggs

Proven to help your child learn to read in just 15 minutes a day, the online award-winning learn-to-read programme is designed by primary school teachers to build your child’s essential reading skills. For ages 2–13, Reading Eggs has been enjoyed by over 10 million children around the world. Kids love the fun characters and catchy songs and you’ll love seeing their confidence grow as they learn essential reading skills – skills that will stick with them for life.

World Book Day Kids Activities with Bring a Book to Life

Are you looking to engage a child in reading? Or perhaps you have a bookworm that loves anything to do with books. In either case, Bring a Book to Life is the perfect book gift to celebrate World Book Day as well as birthdays and other celebrations throughout the year! There are four categories available suiting children aged from 3-13 years: Little Reader, Independent Reader, Reluctant/Dyslexic Reader and Confident Reader. All boxes include a fantastic book, author signatures and/or letters and a whole range of fun activities and gifts matched directly to the book.

I began Bring a Book to Life when my own children weren’t keen to read for pleasure. They could read but saw it as a chore. As a primary school teacher I know the huge importance of reading for pleasure and how it will impact on their futures. I was desperate to hook them in so began by leaving trinkets on their beds to do with the books we were reading. Somehow, by having something tangible to hold my children began to show far more interest in what we were reading. It formed a bridge connecting them on a deeper level to the book.

I read every book included in the boxes and make sure they are just perfect for their intended age categories. Each box is curated by myself, a primary school teacher of 20 years and my passion for reading for pleasure is at the very heart of each box.

If you’re looking for something different for World Book Day this year please take a look at the selection of boxes we have on offer. They are all available to buy as single boxes or as part of an annual subscription. We now also offer 3 and 6 months subscriptions.

  4. Baking! A great activity for children to use their literacy skills – especially for reluctant readers. The added bonus is that you all get to enjoy some yummy treats afterwards!
  5. Do some puzzles! Whether its crosswords, wordsearches or even just following instructions for a game all types of reading count.
  6. Host a family quiz! Children can find facts in their favourite books to create the quiz questions and read them out to friends and family members.
  7. Read to a friend or relative that lives alone. Enjoying a story together and connecting with other people is so good for our mental health and wellbeing.
  8. Create a reading den or find an unusual place to read. Grab your favourite book and find somewhere new to enjoy it – bliss!
  9. Read a new book and write a review to share with friends. You never know, you could introduce them to their next favourite read!

About Just Love Reading

After a twenty-year career in Banking, I wanted to do something where I could make a difference with the flexibility to still be at home for my family.  Running my own Usborne bookselling business enables me to do just that – by introducing families to engaging and award-winning books that will inspire a love of reading and build literacy skills for life.

My son showed a great interest in books from a young age and has now become a confident reader himself – I’m delighted to say that I’ve been able to support him every step of the way in his reading journey with my bookshop!

I love being able to make a difference in my community by helping families find the right books for their children, as well as running my book club and getting free books into my local nursery, preschools and schools.  By sharing the opportunity with others I’ve been able to support them in starting their own businesses and I’m proud of the difference we can make in reaching even more families together.
