NORTHERN LIGHTS AND BRUMMIE SIGHTS
And in between some special World Book Day Week visits!
On Monday I went to visit BELMONT GROSVENOR PRE-PREP SCHOOL out in Nidderdale. It's a huge old house with so many stairs everywhere (and me with my bags and baskets! Groan!) but really nice times telling stories and talking about my books to all the eager young listeners there.
On Tuesday I was away North to ALNWICK GARDENS
, with the light of the sun shining on the sea and on the snow atop the Cheviots. I was meeting some Northumbrian teachers to talk about storytelling and writing.
On Wednesday - today! - I was back in Yorkshire, taking part in LEEDS LIBRARIES CHILDREN'S FESTIVAL 2008.
I was at OTLEY LIBRARY
this morning, meeting Years 3&4 from ST. JOSEPH'S CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL
, and we had great fun.
In the afternoon I was at HORSFORTH LIBRARY
to chat to the full-of-words Green Class from WEST END PRIMARY SCHOOL
, who told me all about their OWN happy writing times, too.
Now I'm trying to have a VERY restful evening, ready for a drive down to WEST BROMWICH TOWN HALL
tomorrow, Thursday. Why? You'll just have to wait and find out!Happy WORLD BOOK DAY for tomorrow, everyone!!!!!!
