National Non-Fiction Day is an annual celebration, initiated by the Federation of Children’s Book Groups in partnership with Scholastic Children’s Books. It aims to celebrate all that is brilliant about non fiction and show that it’s not just fiction that can be read and enjoyed for pleasure.
Check out the website to find out about non-fiction books and authors. There's also a link to lots of great free resources. I was a massive fan of non-fiction when I was at school, and loved reading up on amazing facts and figures (I was a bit of a swot!) so this celebration is long-overdue.
