Did your school hold these kind of parades back in the day too?
That's me, dressed up as a book. I think it was 1986.
My dad made the book and my mum accessorised me in matching red boots, gloves, hat and glasses.
The box was a bit unwieldy to walk around in but I thought it was fabulous.
Note the other kids' costumes: Card Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, Noddy and the Policeman, Raggedy Andy, Popeye and a Very Hungry Caterpillar. Some things never change ;)
Do you remember your old book week parades? Did your parents help out with costumes or did you get creative yourself? I'd love to hear!
