Look Like A Book: Paddington Bear

Here is the first of a fun new blog series starring everyone’s favorite children’s book characters.

Who wouldn’t want to steal radishes while donning their best blue coat like Peter Rabbit? Or wear a straw hat while ‘poo-poo-ing’ at tigers like Madeline? Each week I will be posting how to get those classic bookish looks for your little ones. I hope to provide some inspiration for birthdays, World Book Day, and Halloween.

To start us off we have the lovable Paddington who rocks a duffle coat like no other. With his iconic red hat, yellow boots and brown suitcase he is ready to take on anything (even the British rain!) Just don’t forget to pack marmalade sandwiches!
