World Book Day…the debate!

Written by Jenna Johnston

We asked you your thoughts about World Book Day,
And we loved to hear what you had to say!
64% of you thought it was too commercial whilst 34% thought it was great,
Here are our findings of the great debate!

As you know, World Book Day took place this week, and it got us thinking here at Picniq HQ, what do parents actually think about this yearly event? Is it something that you have planned weeks in advance or a last-minute dash to the supermarket? Do you make your own DIY costume or prefer to buy a pre-made costume? We asked you what you thought and here’s what you had to say!

World Book Day is a registered charity which thrives to give every child and young person a book of their own. Along with this, it is also used as a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and a celebration of reading.

The Results:

We created a poll on Facebook asking you if you thought World Book Day was too commercial or something which you loved. Shockingly, the results showed that 64% thought it was too commercial whilst 34% love the celebration.

Here’s are some of your comments:
