World Book Day - How Sad is It That Supermarkets Are Flogging Costumes ?
Ask a Question
And worse ! How sad is it that lazy parents are buying them !
I love watching the kids going to school on World Books day and their obvious joy in being part of an event to promote literature .
You know who are the happiest kids ? Those who are maybe wearing a couple of tea towels and various oddments sewn together by obviously involved parents .
The miserable ones ? Yes you have guessed it - those who are put into an unrecyclable Supermarket "costume " because modern parents would rather pay £4.99 and send their kids off to school in it rather than talk to their kids , explore the character and construct a costume together .
Parents - the characters from literature are endless - from the Bible to Harry Potter. From Ben Hur to Toy Story . From Agatha Christie to Enid Blyton etc ,etc .
Use this opportunity to interact with your kids . They will certainly enjoy it - and you never know you may also !
