Thanks to all the mums – and the dad – and all those fantasmagorical bubs and toddlers and under 5’s who rolled up to Leichhardt Librarythis morning to listen to me tell stories. This was all part of the Greenway Festival (a NEW festival that will highlight environmental issues / sustainability and local history in MY local area.)
Seeing as though we had an environmental theme I just had to read One child and also tell one of my stories from Zoo you later! Heaps of fun and the kids kept coming in closer and closer to me as I was sitting on the floor so that was fantastic. Especially so when I read -without pictures because Sarah is still creating them – the text for Sounds Spooky! The kids (little and big) loved it and joined in at the right times. And having parents come and tell me tahtt ehy can’t wait for thta tbook … yes that is good!!!
Thanks to the wonderful children’s librarian Karen Johnson for her organising and letting me take over and run wild with her weekly kids storytime – they even had to book for my storytime … normally they just rock on in. The library also has a blog Shelveit – clever name that one – and will be posting about MY storytime too.
More on the Carolinas later but Pam Vaughan (official photographer for the New England conference last weekend) has just sent me oodles and poodles of photos … so if you don’t want to see piccies of me in action – then look away now! There are photos of me with friends, of me panelling, photos […]
