A wide range of childrenf's books are available at bargain prices, and the Welsh Books Council is encouraging everyone to visit their local bookshop to check out the super-duper books on offer. Angharad Tomos, Reading Promotions Project Manager at the Books Council, said:  ‘World Book Day is a great celebration of books and reading, and what better way of celebrating the occasion than giving a gift of a book. The benefits of reading to your child are enormous and it’s vital that children and young people are inspired to read.’  The Give a Book campaign is also supported by S4C this year. Gareth Delve, a popular TV presenter of Welsh-language children’s programmes, said: ‘With a book, you can have an adventure without leaving the house!’  Join in World Book Day celebrations this year by giving a book as a special gift. Offers are available at your local bookshop or gwales.com between 3–22 March to celebrate World Book Day which is held this year on 6 March 2014. Which book will YOU choose?
