Inspiration for World Book Day

Inspiration for World Book Day

Choose SuperDaisy on March 2 and help The Little Princess Trust

We have the perfect suggestion for anyone wanting to stand out and spread the word of The Little Princess Trust on World Book Day.

SuperDaisy is a powerful and uplifting children’s book that tells the tale of a little girl undergoing cancer treatment.

Helped by her wig and superhero disguise, Daisy can shake off her worries about being unwell while embracing a freer world to fight things that aren’t fair.

The book, written by LPT ambassador Rebecca Smith, hit the shops last year and all profits from sales of SuperDaisy continue supporting our valuable work.

Rebecca describes SuperDaisy as a colourful and upbeat character – and we think she is the perfect inspiration for any child, parent or teacher looking ahead to World Book Day on March 2.

Told in rhyme and with beautiful illustrations by Zoe Waring, Daisy lets her imagination run wild as she dons her superhero attire to come to the rescue in different and exciting scenarios.

In writing SuperDiasy, Rebecca said she set out to provide an empowering story for young people undergoing treatment and to also offer a gentle and accessible resource for all children.

Any schools interested in featuring SuperDaisy for World Book Day are welcome to download our SuperDaisy school support pack here!

These SuperDaisy activity sheets are also a wonderful follow-up to the story, supporting further conversations with younger children and providing the possibility of engaging parents too.

Rebecca is also happy to speak to any schools interested in receiving an ‘author’s visit’. Please click here for contact details.

SuperDaisy, published by Harper Collins, is on sale in store and online at all major book shops.
