Pictures from our first successful NFP Kids Book Swap

On Friday we hosted the first NFP Kids Book Swap at Forestville Library.
Kids feasted on fairy bread, cup cakes and strawberries as they listened to Sue Whiting reading her story Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

We had balloons, cake and the occasional fairy. There was even dancing to the sounds of Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

The kids had an opportunity to ask Sue lots of questions about her books-she has written over 60! She was asked which book was her favourite and Sue was very diplomatic. As she said her publisher was standing next to her!

After question time the kids all got their book swapping hats on.


Much fun was had at Forestville library. Many thanks to Sue Whiting who gave up her time for the first ever NFP Kids Book Swap and to Forestville Library who have allowed us to roll out this program in their library and most importantly to eat cake and fairy bread in their library.

The next Kids Book Swap will be at 3.30pm on Friday the 30th July at Forestville Library.
Guest author will be Peter Whitfield, the author of the Zen Tails series and Serena Geddes, the illustrator of Row, row, row your boat.
