Three pages of your World Book Day photos
PINOCCHIO, Snow White and Rapunzel were among the characters filing into schools across Macclesfield as part of World Book Day.
Children proudly wore costumes depicting their favourite characters for the annual event, which is aimed at getting kids interested in reading.
It has become a bit of a contest for parents to come up with a unique and exciting costume for their little ones, but Express readers didn’t disappoint, with dozens of proud parents sending in pictures of their kids looking adorable in their creations.
Children at Broken Cross Primary Academy also celebrated with some fantastic costumes.
As well as dressing up, they kicked off their day with a ‘book and a butty’, where parents and students enjoyed a sausage sandwich and read together.
New headteacher Donna Lewis, who took over the role in January, said: “The children absolutely loved it. There was a huge buzz about the school all day.
“It’s not a day about playing. They did creative writing and learned about the relationship between reading and writing, which is also a really important part of the day.”
