World Book Day 2017

World Book Day 2017

This Thursday marks the 20th annual World Book Day. A celebration of authors, illustrators and children’s literature in general, it’s an exciting time in nurseries and primary schools across the country, as children prepare for non-uniform days and book-inspired lessons – and of course their book token!

Parents everywhere are trawling through book shelves and sifting through dressing up boxes in search of the perfect costume. If you haven’t found yours yet, head over to the World Book Day Gallery for inspiration, or check out our special World Book Day Pinterest board, with dozens of costumes based on our favourite books.
