World Book Day in South Tyneside: How to share your pictures with the Shields Gazette
This year’s World Book Day is celebrated on Thursday, March 3.
We can’t wait to see which colourful characters your children are dressing as for this celebration of reading!
World Book Day is a charity on a mission to change lives through the power of reading, with children of all ages given the opportunity to have and enjoy a book of their own thanks to the collaboration of authors, booksellers, libraries, publishers and schools.
Schoolchildren across South Tyneside and beyond will be marking the day by dressing up as their favourite character from the world of stories – and, as always, we can’t wait to see the fantastic fancy dress efforts for our annual picture round-up.
Parents and guardians – here’s what you need to do to share your picture with us:
*Share your picture – in a landscape shape, if possible – in the comments of that post.
*Please include your child’s name, which character they’re dressed as and the book it’s from. We cannot use a picture without this information.
Thank you in advance for taking part and we can’t wait to see another year of fantastic costumes – from Roald Dahl classics to new favourites!

We receive dozens of pictures every year for World Book Day – we will feature as many as possible online or in print, but we may not be able to use them all.
