World Book Day was created by UNESCO on April 23, 1995 as a worldwide celebration of books and reading and is marked in over 100 countries around the globe.

The first World Book Day in the United Kingdom and Ireland took place in 1997 to encourage young people to discover the pleasure of reading.

Hundreds of youngsters across the Harrogate district dressed up as their favourite book characters to celebrate World Book Day on Thursday and here are just some of them.

There is still time to submit your photos of your little ones as we will be releasing a second edition next week!

Please send them in to [email protected] or [email protected] and include your child’s name, age, school/nursery and character.
