Celebrating World Book Day

Hooray, it’s World Book Day! I love the fact that children all over the country are celebrating their favourite books today. As regular readers of this blog will know, I think it’s so important to encourage kids to enjoy reading from an early age. We decided to get in the spirit of things by making our own Baby Bookworm a little outfit … So I’m very proud to present Little Miss as Little Miss Sunshine! Thanks to Book Aid International for their fantastic and easy step-by-step guide to making the costume and to hubby for being such a big help making it last night – who needs date night?!

Our Little Miss Sunshine

If you’re also getting involved in World Book Day then I hope you’re having fun! And if you’re raising money for Book Aid International I hope it’s going really well. This special charity sends more than 500,000 books a year to communities in Africa where reading cannot be taken for granted. More than half of these are for children. You can read more about their work in my previous post or if, like us, you’d like to make a donation to mark World Book Day please click hereFor every £2 donated they can send a new book to one of the poorest communities in the world.

And I had to make this our Magic Moment for the week as I just love the picture!

    • Ahh thanks. He was very, very useful – I was surprised he was so keen! He did say that if it had involved fabric he would have stayed well clear. Thankfully cardboard is pretty easy to deal with!
