Yoto is the Official Audio Partner of World Book Day® 2023

We are proud to announce that Yoto is the Official Audio Partner of World Book Day® 2023!
The official ‘Audio Partner’ title is the first of its kind for the charity World Book Day and it acknowledges the part aural storytelling and audiobooks specifically have to play in improving reading skills and building a love of reading in children.
Audiobooks are proven to support children’s emotional intelligence and mental wellbeing, improve comprehension and widen children’s access to books*. 
To celebrate the partnership, we will be making a selection of opening chapters of popular audiobooks available for free via the Yoto App. Carefully selected by us and the World Book Day team, there are free chapters as well as full free stories available.
We will be donating £1 from the sale of a selection of 35 Yoto Cards sold during the World Book Day period (Feb 16th-March 23rd 2023) which goes directly to further World Book Day’s charitable mission to promote reading for pleasure and give every child and young person a book of their own.
This year, World Book Day® falls on Thursday 2nd March 2023. Since it was first celebrated in the UK and Ireland over 25 years ago, World Book Day® has grown to become an essential fixture of the year for schools, settings, and communities.
The charity creates a fantastic opportunity to focus on reading for pleasure, supporting children's autonomy in book choice, and embedding a habit of reading that brings a wide range of benefits.
“We’re excited to be working with Yoto to bring more ways to read to more children and families. Audiobooks are a great way for children to enjoy reading, particularly those who are less keen or able to read in print. They can help more children access books and stories, and give all families new ways to have story and reading time together.” Cassie Chadderton, Chief Executive, World Book Day
Ben Drury, CEO and Co-Founder of Yoto comments, “We are so delighted to be working with World Book Day as the Official Audio Partner. Every day we hear how Yoto’s huge library of inspiring audio content is improving children’s literacy and listening skills and opening up a world of story-telling enjoyment to those who otherwise might struggle to access them.”
