Two-year-old Tanner Brooks may be little, but he already has a huge love of book characters.
The Rutherford boy's second Book Week featured not one, but four costumes - a lion, Buzz Lightyear, Fireman Sam, and Woody - one for each visit to day care.
He also tried on an extra two, just for fun.
His favourite was Toy Story's Woody, although, he was pretty keen to dress up as Fireman Sam too.
"He loved picking them," mother Elle Brooks said of Tanner's outfits.
Like most children, Tanner loves to dress up and let his imagination run wild, so he already had a few options to choose from out of his costume box.
"Tanner is an [explorer] who loves to play in the dirt and mud so I didn't want to wash everyday," Ms Brooks said.
"This allowed him to get as dirty as he pleases and allowed me to enjoy taking different pictures everyday.
"Tanner also has lots of cousins so we share them all also."
Clearly Tanner enjoyed his week of dressing up but it was also a special time for his parents Matt and Elle.
After six and a half years trying to conceive, their "miracle baby" Tanner arrived.
"He's the best thing to ever happen to us," Ms Brooks said.
"We longed for doing things like Book Week and all the fun stuff for him so we always go above and beyond.
"He is very loved. We dedicate a lot of our time to being his mum and dad and we wouldn't have it any other way."

Ms Brooks said she loved opportunities to be creative.
"I also have a passion for photography so I love taking photos even if it's only with my iPhone," she said.
"I love all the different characters and I love how excited Tanner gets to dress as his favourite characters from some of his favourite books.
"He really enjoys sharing his books at daycare and telling everyone all about them."
While it will be a challenge for Tanner to top his 2019 Book Week efforts, his mother is certain they're going to give it a third shot in 2020.
"We will definitely be dressing up again next year, however, it will probably be in different outfits as I'm sure Tanner will have different interests around then," she said.
It sounds like the next chapter is going to be full of fun for this young family.
