The situation: the school you’ve been booked in for on Thursday the 2nd of March has requested you dress up for World Book Day. Whilst racking your brain for ideas, you’re also quite aware that
it’s a little daunting seeing as though you may not know the staff and students well enough yet, if at all. However, sometimes in these cases, the best way to fit in is to stand out!
Let’s also not forget the other conundrum here. How do you find a great costume to wear without breaking the bank? We came accross a very helpful post on Mumsnet.com that has OODLES of
great costume ideas that you most likely already have at home!
Here are TeacherIn’s top picks:
Book characters that wear pyjamas
Book characters that wear a red and white stripy top
Book characters that wear a blue or black and white stripy top
Burglar Bill – Burglar Bill by Janet and Allan Ahlberg
Father Christmas – Father Christmas Goes on Holiday by Raymond Briggs
Julius Zebra – Julius Zebra by Gary Northfield

And due to the National Book Tokens’ generosity, World Book Day UK will be sending approximately 15 million book vouchers to children and young people across the country. They can take their voucher to a local bookseller and can use it to pick one of TEN (exclusive, new, and completely free) books. Or, if they’d rather, they can use it to get £1 off any book or audiobook costing over £2.99 at a participating bookshop or book club (terms and conditions apply).
