Book month takes me from one end of Sydney to the other – from kids in Athelstane Arncliffe with lots of kids whose families come from Lebanon to Hills Grammar Kenthurst with lots of kids who are on the edges of our beautiful countryside.
I never realised that writing would take me on this journey which is like a lovefest of literature, young people, readers who jump into my JACK books and sail into Ships in the Field.
They know my books better than I do thanks to the fabulous school librarians who are embracing the National Year of Reading 2012. (NYR)
Love being an ambassador for the NYR.
How special are these librarians – with libraries filled with the kids’ creativitiy, display of books and preparing the kids for my visit.
Special thankyou to Melinda Levy (Athelstane Public School) and Tania Maley (Hills Grammar).
Yesterday was hectic – crossing highways, through inner city and county – got there and it was fantastic.
