Celebrating World Book Day with George at Asda | Review

World Book Day is fast approaching, and I don’t know about you, but it feels like it comes around quicker every single year. On March 1st, children all around the nation will be dressing up as their most-loved book characters and we’ve collaborated with George at Asda to share with you the range they have available for your child on World Book Day

The range available from George at Asda is {in my own words} ridiculously cute! They are fancy dress outfits that I have never seen available before and for such a great price, too. They have gorgeous costumes from children’s beloved authors, such as – David Walliams, Roald Dahl & Harry Potter – and so many more! My two youngest Primary school children, being the little Potter heads that they are, chose to go as Ron Weasely & Harry Potter.

The Harry Potter fancy dress costumes are so lovely, great quality and come with the wand, Gryffindor scarf as well as the glasses too. George at Asda also have the other Hogwarts houses available, such as; Slytherin, Hufflepuff & Ravenclaw.

I absolutely adore that my children’s school gets involved in this annual celebration of books and their characters. My littlest girl is just learning how to read and this will be her first World Book Day celebration in her school. She is beyond excited and even though this will be Jacobs fifth World Book day event, he still loves it.

There is nothing I love more than seeing my children love books. Annabelle is into so many different books right now, from the Gruffalo, The Everywhere Bear and even stories about Monsters under our beds who eat cookies as you sleep!

My two little Potter fans really look the part and I cannot wait to see them walk to school together on World Book Day! George at Asda has an amazing range, so if you still haven’t got your child their World Book Day fancy dress costume yet, do have a look at their range. They’re super cute!

    I tried SO hard to get Roo to dress up in Harry Potter or one of the David Walliam’s book characters (Asda had the best selection of D.W characters out of ANYWHERE!). He’s read them all with me and loves them but the little sausage wanted Batman and he does have a batman book so I conceded! H 🙂

    I can’t wait to dress up my little girl for World Book Day, it’s so important to get children to read more and this is a great way to celebrate reading and creating great outfits inspired by our favourite characters. I love the Harry Potter robes and your children look fantastic.

    I love that books are celebrated with World Book Day. Unfortunately our school is closed tomorrow, due to horrendous weather! Fortunately they were going to celebrate books on Friday anyway, so fingers crossed that we don’t get too much more snow here. These costumes are fab. I got a great BFG one from Asda last year.

    How lovely are these Harry Potter outfits! These are perfect for world book day – I wouldn’t mind one of these myself x

    Oh my god how cute do they look in their costumes, I love that they offer all four houses from Harry Potter as my sister would only wear Ravenclaw. I remember dressing as Wee Willie Winkie at one of my World Book Days
