August is always always always my busiest month of the year – and it’s the same for all of my Aussie author and illustrator friends, as Bookweek stretches out to become Bookmonth. I’m spending this month visiting schools and libraries in Bunbury, Perth, Brisbane and Townsville, talking about books and reading and writing. Exhausting, doing so many visits back to back, but at the same time exhilarating, because I am sharing my great love with enthusiastic kids (and adults too). Every school, every library, every session, is different and that’s because every audience is different, and has different interests and experiences and questions. How lucky am I to spend my days doing what I do?
Here’s a song by some clever young choir-mobbers that thrills me. I just had to share.
Have a great Bookmonth. I am already, and know it’s going to keep being wonderful.
