Kids Costumes for World Book Day

Started by UNESCO as a way of promoting and developing reading throughout the world, World Book day is now entering its 2nd decade in the United Kingdom.

Support for what is an excellent idea is growing year on year. In the UK and Ireland, it is celebrated on the 6th of March and free book tokens are given to school children. Different schools who have registered and will approach the World Book Day differently, with some inviting a book seller to visit. Other schools will invite a story teller. Many schools encourage their pupils to come dressed as their favourite book character.
