Book Creator Workshop

Hi there,

My second visit to Henley Beach Library was for a book making workshop session, I created for the children. We had a full booking of 20 kids, which was great!  We started with a Delia book reading for inspiration, followed by a paper folding into a small book, no staples or sticky tape required! (I will post the instructions for this shortly).Then the children were free to create their own story or use my Create-a-story box.

The box has many story prompts to get started if you are stuck for ideas. I had such fun making these, and the children seemed to enjoy them too. If they didn’t like the prompt, they could go and choose another.

At the end of the workshop there were so many amazing front covers, and great starts to wonderful stories. I will let the photo collage below speak for itself.  If you would like to have your full story featured, get your mum or dad to post a comment, or send an email to:

Well done everyone, it was fun meeting you all!



Delia Book Launch Success!

Hi everyone,

Well what a fun launch day we had at Henley Beach Library. I am pleased to tell you it was a great success, and the kids had such fun listening to my story, followed by some craft, creating their own earmuffs with fake fur, and glittery bits, and a healthy morning tea.

I met quite a few new readers, who took away my book, found a cosy spot to sit and  read it over and over with their parents and grandparents, finding something new each time.

A BIG thank you to Julia and Sue at the Library for your support and setting up each area. Everything ran so smoothly. Also thank you to Mayor Evans for officiating the launch, who spoke of the need for different types of books out there to appeal to the individual reader.

Thanks so much to everyone who attended, it was lovely too see so many smiling faces!
