Children from St Mary’s pre-school in East Ham were going on a bear hunt on Thursday for World Book Day.
While the snow put a stop to their planned hunt round the nearby nature reserve, the children still met to read their most treasured books while dressed up as their favourite characters.
Among those celebrated were ‘the very hungry caterpillar’ by Eric Carle, ‘the super smile shop’, and Michael Rosen’s ‘we’re going on a bear hunt’.
Parent Demi Cutting said: “Although the weather wasn’t great and we couldn’t go on the bear hunt in the nature reserve it was still a lovely session which the children enjoyed.
“The layout of the nursery and the activities that were set out were really good and they made a few of the children’s favourite books into activities, which engaged the children and kept them involved.”
UNESCO’s World Book Day is in its 21st year and is celebrated in more than 100 countries.
