World Book Day

World Book Day

My Sammy, he is so unpredictable. When I asked him which book character he would like to be for World Book Day today, I expected one of the classics that we read over and over. But no. He wanted to be Tom Foley! A little 7 year old boy who learns to play tennis! We bought the book at least a year ago and it does get read at least twice a month, but I never expected him to want to dress up like Tom!

Costume : round glasses, frizzy hair, red shorts, blue t-shirt, red socks and green shoes and of course a tennis racquet.

A trip to the local joke shop and charity shop and we were sorted! Shame the glasses only lasted 2 minutes before Ollie pulled off one of the arms off. A bit of cellotape and we were sorted.

Anyone for Tennis? by Shane McG is a funny story with jokes that are obvious enough and funny for a 3 year old.

Here is my Tom Foley!

What or who did your little readers dress up as?!
