The lovely Karen Collum is visiting our blog today.
She has just released her fabulous new picture book - Samuel's Kisses.
SAMUEL'S KISSES IS LAUNCHED!
A book launch is a wonderful experience, especially when the audience is a class of wide-eyed and enthusiastic 4 and 5 year olds. SAMUEL'S KISSES by Karen Collum & Serena Geddes was launched at the Greenbank C & K Kinder on Wednesday, December 1. The afternoon was filled with dress-ups, craft activities, yummy food, and of course, lots of little people blowing kisses.
Some very special volunteers helped Karen act out the story of SAMUEL'S KISSES, including the inspiration for the story, Karen's son, Samuel.
And of course, what is a book launch without book-themed food? For SAMUEL'S KISSES, that revolved around heart- and kiss-related food, including Custard Kisses (biscuits), heart-shaped fruit, miniature heart cupcakes and of course, a SAMUEL'S KISSES cake.
A big thanks to the staff and students of Greenbank C & K Kinder for hosting the launch. It was a wonderful way to launch SAMUEL'S KISSES into the world.
