Being a book lover myself it was only natural that I would write a blog post about World Book Day and I asked 60 different parenting bloggers what one book they think every child should read and the result was an amazing collection of books. Some of which I can’t wait to read with my children.
Here’s a great post from Emma Read where she shares her family’s top ten children’s books for World Book Day. There’s some books on the list we love in this house too – Dear Zoo in particularly has been well loved by both of my children.
Amy from The Smallest Things writes about how she has started a 10 minute book club challenge everyday since World Book Day. Challenging her and her children to read for 10 minutes each day. Which is a really nice way of making reading part of your daily routine.
There’s a rather fab post on the Blended Parent Network from Daddy Poppins who writes about why he loves World Book Day so much. And, also on Talking Mums where a group of bloggers share their best World Book Day ideas.
If you’re all about the costumes on World Book Day then Angela from The Inspiration Edit has put together a super post featuring a fab collection of World Book Day costumes – I think Dumbledore might be my favourite! Sarah from Boo, Roo and Tigger Too has written about her family’s Star Wars Themed World Book Day, with some helpful costumes ideas. Joy from Pinkoddy has got some really fantastic Alice in Wonderland costumes, if your child fancies being a white rabbit or a playing card. If you need some further inspiration, Maggy from Red Ted Art has some great ideas including a Fantastic Mr. Fox mask or a Cat in the Hat hat.
For those who find the whole day very stressful, and the idea of making costumes for your children brings you out in a cold sweat then Claire from Life, Love and Dirty Dishes has written a very humorous post on How to Survive World Book Day Next Year – one to make you smile.
