Help your child bring their favorite books to life by dressing as their favorite storybook character! For this celebration, students should wear school-appropriate clothing. Some accessories like glasses, wigs, hats and face paints can be used. Please do not bring in masks, sharp objects, or weapons of any kind.

Students can bring in a copy of their favorite book their character is from, to share with their class. We hope everyone participates in this literary event!
