Today is world book day and after being reminded several times by nursery (we forgot once, so shoot me) I asked my son what he wanted to go as.
We got out a few of his favourite books and he decided he wanted to be The Highway Rat, if you haven't read this book then it's very good, from the same fab duo as The Gruffalo.
I have only had my sewing machine for a few weeks but I think made a pretty good job of his outfit, I made a cape and mask and bought a hat which I've adorned with the relevant coloured feathers. He certainly thinks he's the highway rat and that's all that matters ;)
As I have mentioned before on the blog we love reading, I can't imagine not reading to my son before he goes to bed.
We have several books that we read regularly, including some from when I was a child. It's great to see that they never go out of fashion.
Here's to reading and being able to do daft and silly voices to the delight of your child :)
