World Book Day 4th March 2021

World Book Day 4th March 2021

Today we are asking children to share their book characters with us to celebrate world book day. 

Use #thetoyboxironbridge or tag us @thetoyboxironbridge or share your pictures and favourite books to our facebook page. 

Here’s mine and a little bit about why I chose Amelie Earthart. 

Amelia Earhart is a big inspiration for me, having spent a lot of my career in the skies... from flying in planes and helicopters in the RAF, to travelling the world with British Airways, and then gaining my own private pilot’s licence.
The Little People, Big Dreams series of books is just fabulous and great for showing children just what can be achieved by following their dreams.
Mine ultimately led me to the Toybox not the skies, but I couldn’t be happier and I get to play for a living and meet so many wonderful children and grown ups!
