Leicester (PRWEB UK) 28 February 2013
World Book Day is a very important event on the school calendar, as it helps teachers promote reading skills and opens children’s imagination to a world of possibilities through books. World Book Day celebrates the achievements of authors and the books they have written whilst at the same time showing children books can be fun. Schools all around the world come together with their own celebrations to make the day as fun as possible and fancy dress is usually a prominent feature that both children and school staff look forward to.. From J K Rowling’s Harry Potter to Roald Dahl’s James and The Giant Peach children will dress up and embrace their favourite characters and authors in the daylong celebration.
Jack Munton, who works in customer service for Fancy Dress Shack says “We’ve seen World Book Day grow in popularity each year we’ve been in business. Harry Potter always features as a best seller, as does our history book range of costumes like the Victorian Poor Girl, Tudor costume and Maid Marion. For the boys, Roman soldiers, Pirates and Comic book heroes like Ben Ten and Spiderman are always popular sellers. We recommend planning in advance and ordering your costume online as early as possible in order to avoid disappointment. In previous years we’ve seen a real run on a certain theme of costume and they can quickly sell out leaving little ones very upset. We’ve also spoken with frustrated parents who receive only a few days’ notice before the day and this can cause much stress, so a big shout out to the schools to give Mums and Dad’s a bit more advance warning please!”
Luckily many online businesses including Fancy Dress Shack offer a range of special delivery options for last minute buyers to take advantage of and have their selected costumes delivered the next day.
Jack goes on to say ”Whilst people all across Britain are tightening their belts to save money, participating in events like World Book Day need not be an expensive exercise. We have children’s costumes starting from as little as £8.95 and a whole range of accessories starting from as little as £0.75p. With a bit of imagination parents can create a wonderful costume for their child with a few tactical fancy dress accessories.
