Wearing book character costumes is a great way to promote the enjoyment of reading in your young children. Encouraging reading can be a challenge that all parents face from time to time. It is easy for those who just find reading a joy but when there are those who really don’t want to do their book reading at night, it can be a chore.
The Children's Book Council of Australia endorses Book Week to celebrate the importance and joy of reading. Each year they choose a theme. This year the theme is ‘Curious Creatures, Wild Minds’. At Costumes-au.com we celebrate along with you by providing you with many book characters to dress up as.
We supply many wonderful simple book week costumes as well as much more elaborate ones, that your child will find delight in bringing to life the character from a book they love. Even very young children can begin a love of reading through the stories of wonderful characters such as The Cat in the Hat, Winnie the Pooh or his friends Eeyore and Rabbit.
For people on a limited budget, just the ears or a jar of honey will bring these characters to life. Some children identify with a particular character really strongly and year after year wish to dress up for Book Week in a new version of the same character, and Afterall, children grow so fast you will need to replace their costumes.
Whether your son wants to be Harry Potter or the Mad Hatter we have some really well designed and attractive kids’ book week costumes to choose from. The theme of ‘Curious Creatures, Wild Minds’ is best summed up by Matilda, who was able to use her love of books, and knowledge to escape from her bad parents. Many girls choose Matilda as she is a great role model. You can get your very own properly designed Matilda Book Week costume or other strong role models for promoting good reading at our site.
