Yesterday was World Book Day and today is the day our primary school has allowed the children to go in as their favourite book characters. There were some wonderful sights to see ...... Harry Potter, Dobbie, Mr Bump, Mrs Wobble, Matilda and Where's Wally and a very special Hungry Caterpillar
We cheated a little with a bought suit from Asda but I made the butterfly wings yesterday from some wire which I covered in a lovely silky rainbow stripe fabric from Hobbycraft finished with some circles of glitter on PVA. I had a brainwave this morning and started rummaging through my play food box so that Ellie can tell the story (which she knows off by heart as most 5 year olds do).
Thank you Mr Carle for such a wonderful book which celebrated its 40th birthday last year .... unbelievable !!
I also have a copy of The Very Lonely Firefly which the children love too.
