When your timeline is flooded with a whole host photo’s of little ones in a range of costumes, you know it is that time of the year … World Book Day!

 World Book Day is a registered charity on a mission to give every child and young person a book of their own. It is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. As part of this encouragement  to read, children (and teachers) also dress up in their favourite characters from books for the day.

Here are 15 photo’s of  some of our favourite costumes
