We love any excuse to dress the kids up – especially as we know the pictures will come in handy on their 18th birthdays!

Another thing we love is reading and encouraging our little ones to love books too. One of the best events to foster a love of reading has to be World Book Day, which happens once a year, and encourages children of all ages to dress up as their favourite character from a book. The annual event also has perks like book vouchers for primary school children and fun events for bigger kids. Get in touch with your school to find out more.

Now, if you’re already in full World Book Day swing and are looking for World Book Day costume ideas, you’re in the right place. We’ve rounded up the most adorable examples we could find of storybook favourites that we think you and your brood will love. From Frodo Baggins to Pippi Longstocking, you’re sure to find an option your child will be excited to make and wear.
