What Is World Book Day?

World Book Day is celebrated in over 100 countries all over the world; this means that it’s the biggest celebration of its kind. World Book Day is very important. It inspires children to gather together and appreciate the joy of reading. The aim of the celebrations is to inspire children to explore the wonders that reading can bring. Also as discussed above, literature can be a very important tool for education as it can help to teach people about other cultures and backgrounds through the literature that authors create. After all, authors originate from a variety of different backgrounds and ethnicities, so books are fantastic learning materials which can teach people lots of different things and give them an insight into a different culture.

Suggestions For Girl’s World Book Day Costumes

When it comes to World Book Day, it’s no surprise that we love the many fantastic literature inspired fancy dress costumes available. They’re a great way for children to introduce others to stories that they like to read and that mean a lot to them. However for those in need of some food for thought, here’s a quick list of some suggestions to help you choose your daughter’s fancy dress costume amongst our selection of world book day costumes for girls.

  • David Walliams Children’s Books
    The comedian, actor, and author David Walliams, is well known for Little Britain, Come Fly with Me, and his appearances on Britain’s Got Talent. However, he has also written a significant number of children’s books; sometimes being to the popular children’s author Roald Dahl?

    Walliams’ writings provide children with entertaining stories and important teachable lessons. One fantastic story from Walliams is called The Boy in the Dress. This book is about a boy called Dennis who one day decides to wear a dress under the alter ego of “Denise”. Similar to other items of fiction written by David Walliams, this story is a fantastic book to educate younger readers about cross-dressing and how it is not something that somebody should be ashamed of.

    For another example, in the book Grandpa’s Great Escape, the main character Jack has a grandfather who suffers from Alzheimer’s and was a famous pilot during the Second World War. This book provides important lessons for children about of the sacrifices made by those during the Second World War. Additionally, the relationship between Jack and Grandpa is a fantastic way to educate younger readers about the importance of looking after elderly family members.
  • The Harry Potter Books
    There’s something for everyone with Harry Potter fancy dress; the cast includes a diverse selection of different characters of different ages, genders, and backgrounds; including Hermione, Ron, Harry, Ginny, Luna, Tonks, Dean, Cho, and loads more wonderful characters.

    Additionally, the Harry Potter universe and style is recognisable enough to enable you to create your own Harry Potter style costume and character, without people being confused as to who you are dressed up as. So it’s a great choice for those who don’t want to dress up as an established character and instead would like to transport themselves into the world of Harry Potter with a personalised and customised fancy dress costume.
  • Comic Books 
    Graphic novels and comic books provide many inspirational stories and influential characters for people of all ages to enjoy; they provide a similar form of escapism that fantasy novels provide. However, with comic books and graphic novels, the reader can also enjoy skilfully crafted artwork, and in the case of comic books; the story is often presented in shorter and easier to digest segments. This makes comic books a fantastic medium for children at school, as well as working adults who do not have enough spare time to sit and read for long extended periods of time, so the comic book hobby a great activity for both children and parents to get involved in.

    If your daughter is interested in the world of comic books. Perhaps the strong and powerful Kara Zor-El, also known as Supergirl (the cousin of Superman) will be of interest to your daughter. If so, we have a fantastic selection of Supergirl costumes. Perhaps this Supergirl Tutu costume or this Deluxe Supergirl costume?
