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.
