World Book Day 2017

There was only ever going to be one choice for World Book Day this year... the Gruffalo! Oliver is absolutely obsessed with the Gruffalo. To be honest, he's a fan of most of the Julia Donaldson books, the Gruffalo is his favourite but the Gruffalo's Child, Stick Man, the Room on the Broom and Zog are also high up there. He asks us to read the book to him every day (even though he knows them off by heart and could read them to himself!) and is never without one of the characters from the story. He loves the mini films of the books too, acting out the whole thing while it's on which is really cute but pretty loud and dramatic, no idea where he gets his performer characteristic from! His obsession has helped us get him interested in jigsaws, drawing and painting too which I'm really grateful for.

I got an email from Asda about a month ago selling costumes for World Book Day which got me searching for an outfit for Ollie straight away. He's not one for cooperating in fancy dress yet so when I found this onesie in the sale on Debenhams online, I knew it would be a winner with him. Plus with it being in the sale, double winner.

I'm a huge fan of reading to the kids, I think it's a lovely tradition to have and lets their imagination run wild. I used to love reading the Jacqueline Wilson and Harry Potter books when I was younger and most definitely hoping that they'll want me to read the Harry Potter books to them in a few years. We've got quite a lot of children's books and I get most of them in Asda/Tesco (on the 2 for £7 offer), Amazon or the Book People (who always have great offers on).

I wonder what he'll want to be dressed up as next year?...
