October... a busy time for children's literature!

Just a brief entry here...
Well, the CBI Kid's Lit Fest is in full swing with still plenty to see and plenty to do. I won't go on and on. Just get yourselves down to you local library or bookshop and pick up the Kids Lit Festival brochure with hundreds of reviews and recommendations on new books for children of all ages!
Here's the link to the CBI Festival programme, where you can kind out what's going on in your area. Check it out!

And if you're in Galway... it's Baboro time! That's right.. Baboro; the international arts festival for children. While the schools have already scheduled their events for the children, you might want to see what else is going on.
Here's the link: http://baboro.ie/

Please, please go and have a good look at Pictuir... a brilliant exhibition of Irish Children's Book Illustration at the Galway Arts Centre on Dominick Street. Curated by our own Laureate na Nog, Niamh Sharkey, it's been touring internationally and now is your chance to see it in Galway! Oh, don't forget the kids.....
