Q:

What should I be for Book Character Dress-up Day?

A:

Selecting a role for Book Character Dress-Up Day can be helped by consulting classical fairy tales or modern literary works. First assess your favorite types of literature and seek to find a character you feel most comfortable representing.

If you are a fan of popular modern works like "Harry Potter," you will be more likely to find an already-made costume that is sold in stores. If you would rather dress as a classic historical character such as Little Red Riding Hood or Dorothy from the "Wizard of Oz," you might be able to find clothing items or props at antique or second-hand stores.
