World Book Day...

A 'world' day, that it seems no-one outside of the UK knows about, is pretty random in itself, but these backgrounds, chosen by the individuals pictured, are pretty out there...




Today they donned their gladrags and made the most of the sunny weather...


Year 5's theme was JK Rowling, and Year 3 had Julia Donaldson.  I think they looked great.

Linking up this literary selection with Cindy and the Randomeers xxx

  3. We love the books from Julia. You did such a great job making the dresses. I would love if they did it here as well! But we bought books for book day so lets go reading....

  6. I am so glad our school opted out again this year - are there any parents who need more stress?

  7. Great backgrounds. Yes, I was totally unaware of world book day! Did you celebrate Pancake Day on Tuesday?

  8. I wish our schools did this. This is so fun to see all my UK friends posting photos of their kids in costume of their favorite book character

  10. We have Book Day here - but its in August here. Also, the school where the grand kids go, don't do themes, they just pick a favourite character. The costumes look great!

  15. I'm with Charlotte, a theme was a good idea. And the costumes looked fab! Hope they had a great day.

  17. They look amazing! Do you think 'world' book day is like the baseball 'world series - only one country involved?!!

  19. They look fabulous!
    Our school did it today and as they where having an author in who has written a Viking book, they asked if the children would dress as vikings not any character they wanted! So my 8yo son has gone on a sulk and went in, in his uniform!!

  21. oh my that Prof Quirrel turban is inspired! Well done you! Our world book day morning ended as usual in a fancy dress melt down en route to school! someones costume is always too itchy/long/not quite right isn't it and with 3 kids i guess it's decent odds that someone will loose it each year!

  22. They do look great! And in our school. because Year 6 are ALWAYS on their LEV on World Book day - ours is always 2 weeks later - they've renamed it book character day lol!

  23. I get the witch on the broomstick and Prof Quirrell but not sure about the middle book character - can you remind me!?

  24. We know about world book day in Australia, but don't do a dress up for it every year. It's too much work for the parents! Last year my daughters class dressed up to the theme heroes and villains.
