World Book Day celebrations at River View

‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’, ‘Paddington Bear’ and ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ were just some of the beloved books that inspired the costumes of children and colleagues at River View Day Nursery in Hertford as they dressed up to celebrate World Book Day.

At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on North Road, pre-schoolers were delighted to share their favourite stories with friends and take part in themed activities, including delving into story sacks and creating their very own bookmarks, whilst practitioners delivered exciting storytelling sessions, complete with props to commemorate the annual event, which looks to celebrate the magic of books and encourage a lasting love of reading.

River View Deputy Manager, Jolanta Zabulionyte explained;

“World Book Day is brilliant for capturing the imagination and a special event in building literary confidence in preparation for school. From classic fairy tales to stories of friendship and bravery, books have the power to transport us to magical worlds and inspire creativity. Our children have had a brilliant time celebrating and have loved getting into character.”

World Book Day is marked on 7th March 2024 and was created by UNESCO in 1995.
