GALLERY: Your World Book Day photos from across Tayside and Fife

Readers sent us their snaps of kids dressed up.
Readers sent us their snaps of kids dressed up.

On World Book Day children – and adults – love dressing up as their favourite characters.

So we asked readers to send in photographs of their kids in costume – and we had an amazing result.

World Book Day – held annually in March – celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.

Its purpose is to encourage reading together and reading for pleasure as a habit for life.

Many schools and nurseries run book-themed activities and invite children – and staff – to dress up as book characters.

Here are just some of the World Book Day photos submitted to us:

More of your pictures will be printed in the Tele on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday and in The Courier on Monday and Tuesday.
