Where are you going to leave yours? Waiting room? Playgroup? Because everybody deserves books in their lives? Right? Right! Update: Feb 14th gave us the perfect excuse to gift many of the beautiful books we have been given for review. Various books went off in different directions that morning ... school, kinder and friends. The children have taken great pride in handing the books over, explaining what this is all about and watching others enjoy books they love. We were even more chuffed to learn that a local school plans to take this up as an annual event too! Perfect. Massive congratulations on all who were involved in making this day such a great success.
