Youngsters around the region will spend the day as their favourite book characters today.
World Book Day - this year marking its 20th anniversary - is an annual celebration of authors, illustrators and books marked by more than 100 countries around the world.
It is a chance for schools and parents to encourage children - and teachers - to dress as their favourite characters, receive book tokens and take part in events.
Parents and schools from around the region have been sending us pictures of their day - including one from Beeston Hall School of author Julian Segwick knife juggling during a visit.
The school also welcomed author Vivian French to talk to children from six different schools in the area.

Though the date changes every year, in some countries it is celebrated on April 23 - William Shakespeare's birthday.
