What's On for World Book Day

We absolutely love World Book Day, all three boys are official bookworms! I loved reading growing up and I still do but one of the things I love every year is seeing kids celebrate their favourite story book character.

I have noticed a few attractions posting special book day events so I thought I would pop them all together in this handy post for you to come back too.
