It was World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March and Iqra children came out dressed in assortment of characters from Charlie and the Chocolate factory to Demon Slayers! Gareth P Jones author of the Thornwaite Inheritance and Meerkat ninjas  as well as many other books entertained the children with his songs, puppets and stories about how he was inspired to write his books. World Book Day is an important day at Iqra as we try and create positive relationships between children and books. Reading regularly has one of the most significant factors in transforming a child’s ability to be able to succeed in life.
