World Book Day

Three weeks today is WORLD BOOK DAY - a huge charity event where children all over the world get together to celebrate just how brilliant books are. 

The aim is for children of all ages to share their love of reading and discover new authors and illustrators and stories in the process, and every child receives a book token so that they can go and buy a brand new book to read and enjoy too!

Over the past sixteen years (that's how long World Book Day has been going!) lots of nurseries and schools have also encouraged children to come dressed as their favourite book character. Daisy's nursery is no exception, and this year she has decided that she would like to dress up as Rapunzel!

..... Introducing our trusty friends at Jokers Masquerade

Being massive fancy dress fans, we have had lots of dealings with these chaps before and they very kindly sent madam her very own Rapunzel costume for the occasion.

The Disney Child Deluxe Rapunzel Costume consists of a long pink and purple dress with a floral pattern on the skirt, an attached character brooch and a gold braid and white lace trim. A looooooong blonde hair braid adorned with flowers is also included in the set.

Like all of the Disney princess fancy dress outfits, the material isn't luxurious but it is hard wearing and, being polyester, is wipe clean too (MAJOR selling point!). We opted for a size small (age 3-4 years - Daisy is a tall and skinny three year old) and it's pretty perfect. It fits fine now but there is definitely a bit of growing room!

Check out Jokers Masquerade's full range of World Book Day costumes here - there is a huuuuuuge amount to choose from, at prices for every budget, plus delivery options to suit the well organised mama and the last minute one too!

What are your children's favourite books and which characters are they dressing up as for World Book Day?
