― Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You!
In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday the boys school is celebrating with READ ME WEEK. On Friday they are ending the celebration of reading with book character day. The boys are going to be dressing up as a famous book characters. In honor of this creative and fun day I browsed the Internet for a few of my favorite characters brought to life by costume fun. Here are some of my adorable finds from the world wide web. I think the costumes below can easily be tailored to fit adults or child so that everyone may take part in a charatcer day at their school! HAPPY READ ME WEEK!
BOOK CHARACTER COSTUMES
|Carmen Sandiego Book|
Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? Carmen is a media franchise of educational computer games, TV programs, and BOOKS, and I found this Carmen over at What I Wore blog. I will also note this blog is super great, and has many more super fun costume ideas for when you need to play dress up!

|Harry Potter Books|
Luna Lovegood the adorable and quirky little Blondie from the Harry Potter series was brought to life by a fan's costume I found over at Luna Fans. I must say brilliant use of the bike helmet!
|Luna Lovegood Costume|
Oh...to be 6 or 7 again I would morph myself into Miss Fancy Nancy. This is one of those books that I am tempted to buy and read even though I have a house packed full of little boys. I mean come on how fun is she!!! I found this costume over at Blu Moon Design.
Curious George and The Man in The Yellow Hat
|One of my faovirte books series....Curious George|
|Cute cute book inspired costume idea again from Dad Apprentice|
How To Train Your Dragon
This is one of my favorite young readers books. I know this costume doesn't say that it's Hiccup but it totally could be. I am Momma - Hear Me Roar is a brilliant blog with brilliant ideas, and this costume is no exception. I mean she used rug and toilet bowl covers which made for a super cute Hiccup in my opinion!
|Super Cute Viking|
This little pig has big personality! I found the cutie dressed up below over at YOURS TRULY. To cute for words!
|The sweetest little Olivia|
If Give A Mouse A Cookie
I thought this costume was very original and would work great for child or adult. You could change up the undershirt to a grey t-shirt or turtle neck if you didn't want to go sleeveless. The cookie looks super simple to make, and you could just make a large one out of card board if you didn't have two dressing up. I found this story brought to life on website Instructables complete with instructions.
