PICTURES: Lancaster and Morecambe World Book Day

Book lovers took to social media to share their World Book Day pictures.

Pupils and teachers from across Morecambe and Lancaster shared their fancy dress snaps, some dressing up as their favourite characters including Mr Twit from Roald Dahl and Harry Potter.

Phoebe Harrison, 7, as Goldilocks and her brother Jack Harrison, 5, as Harry Potter, they both go to Nether Kellet Primary School.

Staff from the University of Cumbria took on a super hero theme for the day which celebrates authors, illustrators, books and most importantly reading.

Now in its 19th year World Book Day, on March 3, brings children of all ages together to appreciate reading.

The main aim is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own.

Thank you to all the proud parents and staff for sending in their pictures.
