Green Park Day Nursery children celebrate World Book Day
Complete with a visit from a giant dinosaur, children from Green Park Day Nursery in Reading were delighted to dress up as their favourite characters and take part in a range of special activities as part of World Book Day festivities at the setting.
Prince Charming, Peter Rabbit and Dorothy from ‘The Wizard of Oz’ were just some of the beloved literary characters impersonated by pre-schoolers from the day nursery on Lime Square to commemorate the 26th annual event, which looks to celebrate books and encourage a lasting love of reading.
As well as sharing their favourite stories, children from Green Park enjoyed a ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ themed tea party, made famous by the classic story from Judith Kerr, before greeting the dinosaur in a socially-distanced stopover.
Green Park Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Lisa Manston explained;
“Each year we look forward to seeing the children’s incredible costumes, and this year has been no different. We have had a brilliant time exploring some of our favourite books, and this presented endless opportunities to be creative. Storytelling is not only essential for capturing the imagination, but building literary confidence and communication skills too.”
World Book day was created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995.
