Let’s be honest, Book Week was a little chaotic this year. But for those who got the green light to go ahead with the celebration, you deserve a giant clap. Mums (and dads!) you’ve outdone yourselves with the pulling together of costumes for Book Week costumes this year … kudos to you all!
We asked our Facebook mums to show us how their kids dressed up to celebrate Book Week this year and you guys BLEW OUR MINDS with your photos of epic costumes. You’re a clever bunch, we’ll say that!
There were so many favourites, however, we’ve picked some of our top picks and shared them with you below!
