The Beast from the East couldn’t ruin the fun

De­spite the snow caus­ing many schools in Peter­bor­ough to shut, lots of pupils made a huge ef­fort to dress up for World Book Day last Thurs­day. Lots of you sent in pho­tos of your chil­dren dressed up as char­ac­ters, with sev­eral chil­dren ap­pear­ing as Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

There were also a cou­ple of ‘Wal­lies’ and some char­ac­ters from Roald Dahl nov­els.

Peter­bor­ough City Hos­pi­tal also got in­volved, Mem­bers of the Ama­zon Ward play team dressed up as the ‘Things’ from the much loved Dr Suess book Cat in the Hat for the young pa­tients.

Through­out the af­ter­noon the ‘Things’ vis­ited each child and let them choose one of the books from their trol­ley which they got to take home hav­ing missed World Book Day at school.

Ni­cola Wright, play team spe­cial­ist, said: “Tra­di­tion­ally for World Book Day we dress up as Where’s Wally as it’s so pop­u­lar, how­ever this year we chose the book Cat in the Hat be­cause it co­in­cides with Dr Suess’ birth­day on March 2.

“We love dress­ing up as it brings fun to the hos­pi­tal and puts smiles on the chil­dren’s faces. Es­pe­cially if they miss the op­por­tu­nity at school it still makes them feel like they’ve still been in­cluded.”

Peter­bor­ough United also re­leased a video of play­ers and staff read­ing from a chil­dren’s book to mark the day.
