Reading - and The Reading Hour

Spent a LOVELY hour last Saturday as part of THE READING HOUR; a celebration of reading in The National Year of Reading. I not only met several wonderful coordinators of Kumon, but listened to children, a teenager and a verse-maker/poet, Mike Lucas, read works to an appreciative audience. They relaxed on chairs, cushions or on the floor in the bright, cheery Woodcroft Library, south of Adelaide, SA. 

It was like a big, cosy lounge room on a somewhat wet, dreary day. Perfect for reading indoors!

I chose to read my picture book, Where does Thursday go?  to the group. After the readings there was a book raffle and light, healthy refreshments.

Mike Lucas and me with our Reading Hour certificates.
Altogether, a wonderful time!
