MC Grammar has created a song for World Book Day which happens on the 4th of March in the UK.
The teacher from London also works as an English advisor and also has a real passion for music so decided to combine his passions.
On his website he explains: “I have been so fortunate to share my approach with thousands of young minds and educators across the world. So to all of the teachers out there who have attended one of my training sessions and, of course, every kid I have been fortunate enough to work alongside or teach — thank you! Without all of you (and the awesome parent crew), none of this would be possible: the views, the likes, the comments and shares from all of the countries all over the world. Unbelievable! And the best bit…this is just the beginning! My mission is to share my approach to learning and music with every child (no matter where they are) to make learning memorable, inclusive, and most importantly…FUN!”
Mr M, as his students call him, wrote the World Book Day song about finding a new book to purchase with his free voucher.
The celebratory day helps promote literacy and hopes to give children greater access to books by offering them a voucher for a free book.
MC Grammar’s new song includes references to recognisable children’s books such as We’re Going On A Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen, Judith Kerr’s The Tiger Who Came To Tea and The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister.
I have teamed up with @Decca Records, @MonkeyNBC & the @WorldBookDayUK charity to release the official and first-ever World Book Day Song! 🥳All of the proceeds go to the WBD charity, so please support the cause if you can.

MC Grammar, real name Jacob Mitchell, said: “I am so proud to be a World Book Day Ambassador.
“Mixing the power of music with the magic of books is the coolest combination and an incredible opportunity to get kids excited about books and reading.”
Cassie Chadderton, World Book Day CEO, said: “We’re so excited to be teaming up with MC Grammar for our first ever official World Book Day song.
“We’re here to inspire children with the transformative power of reading, and it’s great to have MC Grammar’s help to bring more of the joy and fun of World Book Day to children, whether they are at home or at school, this year.”
