Celebrating World Book Day at Cedars Day Nursery
‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ and ‘Dear Zoo’ were just two of the books that children and colleagues from Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard took inspiration from as they dressed up in their bubble groups to celebrate World Book Day.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding Day Nursery on Mentmore Road, pre-schoolers were delighted to share their favourite stories with friends and impersonate beloved literary characters to commemorate the 26th annual event, which looks to celebrate books and encourage a lasting love of reading amongst children.
As part of the festivities, children made their own rainbow crayons and bookmarks, inspired by the book ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’, as well as constructing their own houses using bricks, sand and sticks to link to the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’.
Cedars Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Laura Farrell explained;
“We look forward to World Book Day every year as the costumes are always fantastic, and the occasion provides endless opportunities to be creative. Storytelling is not only brilliant for capturing the imagination, but essential for aiding language development, building literary confidence and helping us to understand emotions.”
World Book Day was created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995.
