Win an animal morphsuit for children – World Book Day

children's animal morph suit competition for world book day

World Book Day is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and most importantly, a way of encouraging children to enjoy reading more, and it’s here in less than a week!

World Book Day and fancy dress go hand in hand – what better way for children to become more engaged with the stories they’re reading, than for them to dress up as their favourite characters from their favourite books and bring them to life.

Morphsuits’ range of official Animal Planet costumes, including tigers, zebras, cobras, gorillas, grizzly bears, jaguars, bats and leopards is perfect for this and we’ve teamed up to give you a chance of winning one just in time for World Book Day! You can take a look at the full range here on the Morphsuits website.

If you want to be in with a chance of winning a children’s animal morphsuit of your choice in time for World Book Day on Friday, all you have to do is fill in the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck!

  2. Gosh just one, tricky. Erm I think it would be the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. They love the fantasy of it all.

  3. Probably Gullivers Travels. I read it as a child .It allows children to use their imagination.

  4. Far too many to choose from, but my favourite book is Christmas at Blackberry Farm, for a bit of very sweet nostalgia!

  5. Anything by Roald Dahl. They might not be educational but they are funny, imaginitive and kids love them. With a bit of luck that would be enough to spark a childs interest in reading.

  6. The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss as all kids I know have enjoyed reading the books and also when I was younger remember reading them as entertaining

  10. The dictionary because you can make up stories based on new words learned

  11. If schools could only read one book with children, which book should they read and why?
    Depends on the age of the children. Younger children might enjoy The Emperor’s New Clothes as it’s a funny story but teaches them about vanity, not taking things as they appear

  12. Difficult question indeed! For younger children I would say Guess How Much I Love You just because it’s such a beautiful book. For older children, Harry Potter without a doubt! It has everything – fantasy, comedy, thrills and spills, and is dark without being too scary!

    Reply

  13. For older children (approx 8 or 9 upwards), “I am David” by Anne Holm sticks in my mind still, brilliant and thought provoking.

  14. handa’s surprise – a great introduction into other ethnic countries and a very heartfelt and warming story

    Reply

  15. That’s a hard one! Something like Roald Dahl’s Matilda to emphasise how important reading is & to show them they can achieve anything even if they don’t have the greatest family.

    Reply

  16. if it was youngPrimary school children i would probably say ‘The lion, the witch and the wardrobe’ as its such an amazing book which would appeal to a wide variety of audiences.

    For secndary school children I would say ‘The diary of Anne Frank’ which I think is a very powerful and thought provoking book.

    Reply

  17. Depends on the age of the children but for Y6 Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo has been known to reduce some of my class to tears over the years. It is always tricky to get the balance right between reading and talking about the many issues raised by this brilliant book :)
