World Book Day Extravaganza... Day 5

WOW... what a great week it has been! Today was the final day of Dubray Books, Galways' World Book Day Extravaganza 2012. We had a truly wonderful day... 96 children from local schools were treated to readings and lively entertainment. First of all, I started the morning off by reading to a 5th/6th class from two new books; Wonder by RJ Palacio and Twelve Minutes to Midnight by Christopher Edge. (Both great books... and I really hope the girls enjoyed them as much as I did.)
But the big events of the day and our final sessions were offered by the warm and wonderful Maeve Friel. Witch In Training, Tiger Lily and Lantern Moon were brought to life in events that also included impromptu flying lessons (on a broom, of course). Just brilliant! Thank you so much, Maeve. I can't think of a better way to an incredible week!
