In preparations for World Book Day on the 4th of March, we’ve been searching far and wide for costume inspiration! For a World Book Day that’s less-than-ordinary, with high street shops closed and perhaps slightly emptier pockets than usual, what better time to do-it-yourself?! Check our the fantastic sustainable costumes below.
Sustainable costumes for World Book Day can be made from all sorts around the house. You don’t need to be an expert sewing machinist or professional crafter. Gather the cardboard boxes from your latest deliveries, old felt from the kids’ activity sets, Cotton wool, toilet roll tubes, old sheets and poster paints, scissors, glue and eco-glitter… cut up and rework tired clothing into a brilliant new creation!
Hi, I am Becky, back with another kids’ book review! Check out my last review of Night Night, Groot by Brendan Deneen. I spent a lot of time reading to my daughter to help her drift off to sleep and it has now become a part of our bedtime routine with a night-time story or three as we wind her down from her day. Personally, I loved books when I was growing up and I want her to appreciate and love them too. Today I’m reviewing another favourite, Ten Little Superheroes by Mike Brownlow, fantastically illustrated by Simon Rickerty.
To celebrate World Book Day (4th March) and International Women’s Day (8th March), we wanted to share our top 10 empowering books for little girls.
These books are a delightful way to introduce significant social and environmental subjects to your children. They tackle the importance of acknowledging climate change, discuss gender norms, and celebrate diversity. Find the best books containing inspiring female leaders and teach your young children, especially girls, that being brave and being yourself is all anyone needs from you.
Little girls and guys too, the world is tough – but so are you.
World of Books wants to hear from all of our keen little readers out there. We welcome you to share a short video recording of your child reviewing their favourite book from their bookshelf. Alternatively, you can share photos and text if you prefer not to include a video. We will be sharing their reviews* and awarding the best ones with an exciting prize.
The soldier, Lance Corporal John Wheldon-Williams, had received a package from a schoolgirl – Miss Pat Moore – containing a pair of mittens she had knitted to provide some comfort. He was so touched by this gesture, he decided to reply to let her know just how important her contribution to the war effort was.
We’re delighted to announce that following a campaign to uncover more about the story behind the letter, we’ve been able to reunite this with Pat’s daughter – and discover more about the soldier that penned it.
