This Saturday 6th February is National Libraries Day. So why not head on down to your local library and get in some serious reading time!

There are some fantastic events going on in libraries all over the UK this weekend so be sure to check in with your local library and see what’s goin on. There are poetry workshops, readings, themed activities and all sorts.

To celebrate, here are five fantastic children’s books which also have characters it’s great fun to dress up as…

1. Alice in Wonderland

You’ve probably seen one of several movie adaptations of it… but don’t forget this classic was originally a book – and Alice comes to life in the pages of it. She’s great to dress up as too – and one of the few costumes you could wear to walk across town to the library without getting funny looks!

2. Harry Potter

Well, we couldn’t very well write about children’s books and not include Harry! Can you believe the first Harry Potter book came out 19 years ago?!

3. The Very Hungry Catterpillar

This Eric Carle classic was first published in 1969 – and has been a childhood favourite for generations now. All children love the Very Hungry Catterpillar; they’ll love to dress up as him too.

4. The Cat In The Hat

This one is even older; Theodore Geisel (aka Dr Seuss) wrote this book in 1957 in response to a debate in the United States about childhood literacy. ┬áThe Cat in the Hat is known and loved around the world… and great fun to dress up as!

5. The BFG

Roald Dahl is one of the world’s most popular children’s authors. There are so many of his characters you could dress up as… but this one is just something special; his big ears are great fun to recreate!
