Days of blood sweat and tears from proud parents across Harrogate, Craven and Wharfedale have come to an end as children go to school to celebrate World Book Day.

World Book Day is a key date in the calendar of primary schools across the country.

We asked you to share photos of your little ones ready to go into school for a day of learning in their special costumes.

You didn't disappoint.

Here are our 10 favourite photos sent in by you this World Book Day.
