World Book Day 2023 - Children 1st Day Nurseries

World Book Day 2023

World Book Day is an annual event dedicated to changing the lives of children through a love of books and shared reading. It’s a brilliant opportunity for us to get together to celebrate the joy and knowledge that books give us and enjoy the magic that can happen when we share a book.

Why is sharing stories so important? It’s fun and opens the door to creativity and imagination. It’s such a positive experience for adults and children to share a precious few moments and of course, books help to stimulate the development of children’s language, thinking and other skills.

From very hungry caterpillars, tigers and pirates to Postman Pat, Horrid Henry, princesses and Gruffalos, the children all looked fabulous in their World Book Day outfits.  Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland added some magic to the day as books were shared, costumes admired and games were played.

Thank-you to everyone who supported World Book Day and long may you continue to share a love of books with your child!

Our photo gallery presents a round-up of some of the fabulous costumes and wonderful books that got us all smiling and talking.
