Slideshow: World Book Day in Harrogate

It’s World Book Day today and youngsters throughout the area have been dressed as their favourite characters.

Many of the area’s schools and nurseries are joining in the fun of the date that celebrates books and reading.

Part of the fun is for children to dress as a character from their favourite story or nursery rhyme.

Pannal-based pre-school Busy Bees have sent in a picture of their youngsters dressed up for the occasion.

“Our children made a fantastic effort today dressing up for World Book Day,” said a spokesman.

We’d like to see more pictures to feature in the Harrogate Advertiser series of newspapers and online.

Please send to: news@harrogateadvertiser.co.uk Please include the child’s name, age, school/nursery and character.
