World Book Day 2020: Colourful costumes as South Tyneside's children channel favourite characters

A celebration of stories and reading has taken place across South Tyneside for World Book Day, marked on Thursday, March 5.

Children across the borough have been letting their creative flags fly, donning costumes to pay homage to their favourite characters from beloved stories. And we’ve been loving your pictures! Families have really been putting in the effort with this year's outfits and here are some of our favourite photographs so far. See if you can spot your little bookworms in action!
