I was delighted to visit May Road School on Friday of NZ Book Week.
What a great day!
At lunchtime I read stories in the library to a large, enthusiastic gathering of children.
After that I was in for a treat – May Road’s Book Character Parade. Wow! There were some fabulous costumes – witches, super-heroes, fairy-tale characters, and a whole class of crabs!
To finish off there was a special assembly where I helped the principal, Mrs Stuart, hand out certificates and prizes. (See if you can spot me - I may be wearing a wig). Then the whole school watched a hilarious play written by librarian, Andrea, and acted out by the staff. The children were rolling around in hysterics.
Great to see so much book love!
Thank you May Road School.
