Pupils from Magdalene House Preparatory School dressed up as their much-loved characters to celebrate the annual event yesterday (March 5), as well as spending time to talk about the stories they find most interesting.

Keryn Neaves, senior deputy head at Magdalene House Preparatory School said: "We are keen to ensure all children enjoy reading and make story-sharing a part of their everyday lives.

"As referenced by World Book Day, reading for pleasure is in decline, so we are more than happy to support this initiative and spark the imagination of every pupil at our school.

"Our pupils embraced the day and the costumes were fantastic."

Mrs Neaves added: "A big thank you must go to families for supporting this event."

World Book Day aims to help children discover the pleasures of reading through having a book of their own.
