Just look at what you have in the cupboard and modify it a bit.  There is no need to get carried away.  The object of the Book Parade is to raise awareness of books and reading, to make it fun, to be in the ‘spirit of things' and for all children to participate. 

Are there any prizes for the best costumes?  No, it's just for fun.

What is NOT ALLOWED as part of a ‘dress – up' costume?  Children arenot allowed to have guns, knives or any other weapon as part of their costume. They also cannot have skate boards, scooters or rollerblades as part of their costume. 

Do the children come dressed in their costumes?  Yes, or you could come in at recess time to dress them.

Who can come?Parents, grandparents or anyone else important to your child are most welcome at the school for the Book Parade. 

Is there anything on afterwards?  Yes, there is a Scholastic Book Fair in the Library where children and parents can purchase books. 

Any problems?   See your child's teacher or Mr Lemmon in the Library.
