I’m SO excited that World Book day is just around the corner! I’m such a bookworm myself – since I was a kid I have always loved the feeling of getting lost in the magic of a book – from Enid Blyton, Helen Fielding to Stephenie Mayer whether on an adventure with your friends in Kirrin Bay, Mad About the boy, or love a Vampire love triangle there is something for you to get captivated by! My fave as a child was definitely Roald Dahl’s Matilda I mean who wasn’t scared of Miss Trunchbull (although she did put the hair bun back on the map!) – I admit I read it until the pages were falling out and my mum even had to tape it back together! It still holds pride of place on my bookshelf today.
World Book Day has now been going for 17 years and this year it’s taking place on 6th March. It seems to be getting bigger and better each year with more and more schools and adults all over the country taking part. It’s become so big that children all across the country are being encouraged to read and dress up as their favourite literary character – from “The hungry caterpillar” to “Harry Potter’s” Hermione Granger – everyone is getting involved…pity we can’t get our hands on Crookshanks! Last year my Facebook page was inundated with lots of my friend showing off their child’s awesome costumes in a variety of funny poses, I can’t wait to see what this years costumes will be like (queue the Minions!).
So if you’re a little unsure about what to get your little one for World Book then look no further. We have a super cute range of children’s fancy dress everything from your Super Heroes and Disney Princesses to Robin Hood and Monsters High – we can’t forget the classics, who wouldn’t want a cute little Jedi running around!
There’s definitely something for every personality and to celebrate here at Very we’ve a 3 for 2 on selected children’s books!
Have you decided what will you be sending your little monster to school as for World Book Day?
