When is World Book Day?

World Book Day 2017 will be held on Thursday 2nd March. This year is a special occasion as it will mark the 20th occasion since it was first started by UNESCO as a way to celebrate everything that is great about books and reading. It is now acknowledged in over 100 countries worldwide and many children (and adults too) will be dressing up for World Book Day and taking part in lots of exciting World Book Day activities.

World Book Day Costume Ideas

The secret is to find something simple – preferably a no-sew costume idea that is easy to put together. Start by asking your child if they have any ideas from their favourite characters and then narrow down a shortlist, thinking about what is the easiest to achieve in the time you have.
