Dress up and celebrate the World Book Day
On March 6th 2014 is the World Book Day and children around the world will be going to
school dressed as their favorite book character. Here, I share with you a sneak peek of
what my little bookworm will wear tomorrow for the dress up day and which book was our
inspiration for the costume.
Lost and found
I’ve already blogged about some great books by Oliver Jeffers but Lost and Found is my
four years old son’s favorite. I bought Lost and Found book for Alex when he was too little
for reading, maybe 1 year old, but I fell in love with its story and beautiful illustrations
so I purchased the book anyways and kept it on his bookshelf for a while before reading it
to him for the first time. Three years after… and Lost and Found was his favorite book!
When we learned about the World Book Day at school, Alex told me without too much
thinking, he’ll be the character from the Lost and Found book. I loved the idea. I thought
of the boy…but he thought of the penguin! Kids are always full of surprises…aren’t they?
With the temperature rising up to 30C these days, getting the whole penguin costume made
of polyester fake fur didn’t seem like a good idea, so we went only for the penguin hat.
The rest was improvisation in B&W: black tights (I bought them in girls section), striped grey
and black t-shirt with longs sleeves and white cotton t-shirt on top, black socks and…here comes
the penguin, easy peasy!
