Happy World Book Day 2012

I hope you are all having a great day and the children are having fun with books today.

The Jellyfish hasn't gone to school in costume this year as each class was given a particular author or book as a theme and The Jellyfish's class could go as either a gorilla or a banana. I didn't have either of those costumes lying around at home and with two days notice, I wasn't going to make one (as if I could). So she took a toy gorilla with her instead. Except I realised this morning it wasn't a gorilla at all but a chimp. Oh well. She took it anyway.

What are your little ones doing today?

And what are you reading at the moment?

I'm reading The Ugly Sister by Jane Fallon and have almost finished.


  1. A chimp or a banana? Whoever thinks of these outfits either has never had to produce them, or must be incredibly inventive. I had to produce a victorian outfit overnight once, thankfully my daughter was happy to go as a hangman and dressed from head to foot in black.

  2. That annoys me more than anything - the lack of notice.

    I saw a photo on twitter of one school where the children decorated paper crowns with characters from books, which I think is a much better idea - more creative for the children and less stress for the parents. Everyone can join in then.
