Characters from around the globe descended on Padiham to celebrate World Book Day.

Spanish senoritas, cowboys and girls from the United States,Indian princesses, suave Frenchmen and several Oriental beauties arived at Whitegate Nursery in Victoria Road.

Children and staff had to guess which country each other was from by looking at their outfits and some very well known stories were read to the children in French and Spanish which they found both amusing and confusing.

There was also a chance to sample a selection of foods from other countries.

Parents also came into the nursery to help and got the chance to see for themselves how young children learn early literacy skills.
