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.

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

  2. fts100 says

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


    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.

  4. kim neville says

    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


    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

  6. says

    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!

  7. C Parkin says

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

  8. Julie Henderson says

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

  9. Laura Pritchard says

    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.

  10. Kelly Hooper says

    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.

  11. Patricia Avery says

    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 :)

  12. Susie Wilkinson says

    It’s got to be Roald Dahl, Danny the Champion of the World was always my favourite as a child!

  13. Laura Lee says

    The Gruffalo, all time favorite with my own children and all of the children I have looked after over the past 13 years :-)

  14. Karen Barrett says

    The Railway Children by Edith Nesbit. The storyline has it, history, family life and values, spy intrigue and a happy ending.

  15. katrina walsh says

    Charlie and the chocolate factory as it has all the key components for a good book – humour,imagination,family values, a good plot and good beating bad.

  16. Kel Ellen Hirst says

    Flour babies by Anne Fine, it sticks in my mind from when I was a child so must have been good and had an impact :)

  17. Lindsay Harris says

    Thats very hard. Just one book. I think I’d chose my favourite which is my ‘complete works of lewis Carrol book. Is that allowed if I have to narrow it down Ill say Alice in Wonderland.

    • Lindsay Harris says

      I forgot to say why! Because its a timeless tale and full of nonense and crazy imagination. Children love it as much as i do.

  18. Karen R says

    My teenage daughter says the boy in the striped pyjamas, so it must have really affected her – I haven’t read it or seen the film, but I’ll go with her suggestion :)

  19. Rachael Jones says

    the jungle book , because not only is there meaning in the story but also a fun aspect of animals :)

  20. Hannah says

    I am thinking the gruffalo for younger children and the lion, the witch and the wardrobe for older ones as they have so much in them!

  21. Iram Mahmood says

    Enchanted Wood- Enid Blyton.
    Suitable for a wide range of ages, hugely imaginative easy to understand but still introduces some sophisticated language they can pick up. :)
