The world of fiction came to life across Brighouse schools as they celebrated World Book Day.

From Snow White and the seven dwarves to the Gruffalo, youngsters dressed up as their favourite characters.

At Castlefields Infant School, Rastrick, teachers dressed up as Where’s Wally while the children came as a variety of book characters.

Among the children was Summer Allen, who is undergoing further treatment for Neuroblastoma but was able to attend school for World Book Week and join in the special activities.

St Andrew’s Infant school, Brighouse celebrated World Book day together by enjoying a day of enjoying as children brought in their favourite story. Pupils took part in a competition for World Book Day at St Andrew’s junior School as they were asked to create a book cover with blurb on the back. The school also raised money for their library fund in the process.

Youngsters at Field Lane Primary School also took part by coming as their favourite book idols as they read stories in schools and made models of characters.

World Book Day is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and reading. Now into its 17th year, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world. The main aim is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own.
