This year World Book Day is on Thursday 5th March 2020! Young bookworms are preparing to celebrate their childhood favourites including the works of Dr Seuss, Roald Dahl, L. Frank Baum and many more! World Book Day is about celebrating the importance of reading by bringing authors, illustrators, books and avid readers together.
While it can be hard to pick a favourite, we’ve selected a few authors and characters we know will be popular this year — and matched them with a perfect pair of girls sparkly shoes!
Wizard of Oz
The Wizard of Oz is an incredible story with a long list of likeable characters, including the main protagonist Dorothy Gale. For us, it’s hard to think of a more iconic pair of girls sparkly shoes than her glimmering ruby slippers!
At the Sparkle Club, we carry beautiful red sparkly shoes, both as a set and a single pair, in sizes ranging from infant 5 to older girl 4. As a set these stunning shoes come with socks and hair ribbons to complete your little girls Dorothy outfit.
Or if your little girl wants to dress up as Glinda, we’ve got several pairs of beautiful pink sparkly shoes in new styles for you to choose from!
Cat in the Hat
The work of American author, whose pen name was Doctor Seuss, ignited the imaginations and creativity of children the world over. Many of the works he created are popular choices for World Book Day costumes including How the Grinch Stole Christmas; The Cat in the Hat; One Fish, Two Fish; and even Fox in Socks.
Since we have a broad range of colourful girls sparkly shoes, you can take your pick to find the perfect ones to match a beloved Dr Seuss character! We stock sparkly shoes in a variety of colours, including white, gold, silver, red, blue, and pink.
British classic stories like The BFG, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, and James and the Giant Peach have captured the hearts of millions of children. Roald Dahl’s books have sold over 250 million copies worldwide!
This fame means his stories and characters are trendy choices for children of all ages on World Book Day! We have a few pairs of girls black shoes to pair perfectly with an outfit for the beloved character and avid reader Matilda. And as we’ve said we have pink sparkly shoes that could match a pink dress for Sophie, from The BFG.
These are just a few ideas… you’ve probably got plenty of your own! Other popular book characters we see on World Book Day come from Harry Potter, Peter Rabbit, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Goldilocks, Alice in Wonderland, Paddington Bear, and many more!
