Peterborough City Hospital celebrated World Book Day on March 1 with the play team from the Amazon Ward dressing up as characters from a certain book.

The members of the play team dressed up as the ‘things’ from the much loved Dr Suess book, Cat in the Hat, for the young patients on Amazon Ward. This included blue wigs, blue tutus and having thing 1-4 stuck to the back of their top. 

Throughout the afternoon the ‘Things’ visited each child and let them choose one of the books from their trolley which they got to take home having missed World Book Day at school.

Nicola Wright, play team specialist said:  “Traditionally for World Book Day we dress up as Where’s Wally as it’s so popular, however this year we chose the book Cat in the Hat because it coincides with Dr Suess birthday on March 2nd.”

“We love dressing up as it brings fun to the hospital and puts smiles on the children’s faces; especially if they miss the opportunity at school it still makes them feel like they’ve still been included.”
