It’s Book Week Scotland this week and across the country there are lots of events and fun things to get involved with in celebration of books. Pictured above are love letters by Little Owl and I, which we have sent off to our local library. It’s a super idea from the team at Book Week Scotland. You go here to print off a template for your love letter, fill it in, and send it off!
Little Owl and I have lots of love for our local library. When we moved house in April it was a great way of getting connected. We went along to Book Bug rhyme sessions, plugged into local groups advertised through the library, and most importantly, spent lots of time there reading books! The staff at our library are so enthusiastic and friendly. Over the summer they put on craft sessions with an array of activities for the kids to try out. Little Owl made a flappy, fire-breathing dragon that flew everywhere with her for about two weeks. She also did the summer reading challenge, which culminated in a fun party (with visiting tarantula!) for all the children who had completed the challenge.
If you’re in England you can go here to tell the world how special your local library is via the Guardian website.
