It’s that day of the year again when children will be dressing up as popular characters from memorable stories to mark World Book Day.

Although many youngsters will unable to celebrate the occasion with their classmates as schools are not due to reopen until next week, plenty of teachers and parents will still be doing their best to help children enjoy the day by dressing up at home.

So whether your child has transformed into Harry Potter for the day or another character from a book, stage or screen, we’d love to see what your child has dressed up this year.

We’ll be updating our gallery as regularly as we can, so get in touch and send us your pictures using the link below.

And if you’re home schooling today and have decided to join in the fun by dressing up as well, do send us a picture of yourself and your child.
