Lime Grove celebrate World Book Day

‘The Gruffalo’, ‘Dear Zoo’ and ‘Mary Poppins’ were just some of the beloved books that inspired the costumes of children and colleagues at Lime Grove Day Nursery in Hemel Hempstead as they dressed up to celebrate World Book Day at the setting.

At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Park 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.

Lime Grove Day Nursery Quality Manager, Robyn Shuck explained;

“World Book Day always brings huge excitement in nursery, and we love seeing the fantastic costumes year on year. The occasion provides endless opportunities to showcase creativity and build upon literary confidence in preparation for the children heading to school. It’s incredible to see their imaginations soar as they immerse themselves in the world of books.”

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