World Book Day 2017 is fast approaching. On March 2nd Children across the country will be dressing up to celebrate their favourite characters and authors. Many schools and nurserys will have a programme of book related activities throughout the week.

Now I love books, that’s no secret, I regularly splurge on new reads for Luisa and I’m trying to find more time to read myself. That being said – I’m chronically disorganised so I can see future World Book Days being a bit of a panic. I always have good intentions when it comes to this kind of thing but often leave things to the last minute.

That’s why I’m chuffed to be able to share these ideas below with you. They’re all achievable using things already in your children’s wardrobe. Bilbo Baggins is my personal favourite because I love Tolkein but I think Lu would suit Red Riding Hood much better.
