With Book Week fast approaching, we got talking about the best Book Parade costumes. I asked Miss 7 what some of her favourite book characters were and which would be the most fun to dress up as. This girl loves a good excuse for fancy dress!
True to form, Miss 7’s choice for the Book Parade this year is not your standard costume. It’s also not something I’ll be able to pull together with a few props. Ho Hum. If only it were one of our favourite book parade costumes.
I suspect that given the onesies trend is still in full swing at the moment, choosing and finding book parade costumes might not be as difficult as previous years. Although I do know many parents dread book week and the late night hustle with needle and thread!
So to help you out, and to share some last-minute inspiration, we’ve chosen our favourite (and in our opinion) the best book parade costumes for Book Week. They’re a collection of our favourites based on what we’ve been reading and thoroughly enjoying lately.
Our Favourite Book Week Book Parade Costumes
What’s your favourite Book Parade Costume? Do you know yet what your child has chosen to wear? Do you have a favourite childhood book?
Note: This list is the combined efforts of nanny & co. We advise that these are definitely not the best costumes as according to any such universal specifications, nor consensus. This list simply features our personal favourites that bring meaning to us and enable us to connect to reading. And I suspect that truthfully, the list says more about my own personal childhood favourites, than that of the kids.
