Lapuke H (then 5) at Books for Kids, Grey Street, Hamilton – I LOVE the window!!

 

 

Poet Mere Taito brought her young son to hear me read from Letterbox Cat when it was just launched a few years ago. I didn’t know her then, but now I know and love her poetry!

Mere sent me these photos this week and it made feel happy after feeling a bit sad about all the things that have gone missing in our lives at the moment, about some people being mean in supermarkets, about people getting sick.

I am inviting you to send me a photo with a sentence or two on something that has given you joy in the past week in your bubble. I will post some at 4 pm today (with parental or guardian permission).

I am also inviting you to write or draw or make something for your favourite bookshop or library (a poem, a letter, a story, a picture, a comic strip, a card, a book pile, a book spine poem). Don’t forget to tell me which library or bookshop.
