Happy National Bookshop Day!
|MacLean's Booksellers, Hamilton|
Here in Newcastle, our community came together to support our local independent bookshop, MacLean's Booksellers in Hamilton.
Together we read stories, learnt some illustration techniques, launched books and ate a tremendous amount of lollies, chocolate and cake. The perfect kind of party!

After reading our story, Kirrili challenged the kids to draw some illustrations for possible new pages in our book, 'Dandelions'. They had fun drawing twisting dandelion seeds and gerberas.
Deborah Kelly launched her second book in the 'Ruby Wishfingers' series called, 'Toad-ally Magic!'. Cupcakes, chocolate frogs and toad bookmark craft kept the kids busy while others lined up to get their new book signed.
Thank you to Max, Amanda and all the staff at MacLean's Booksellers in Hamilton for asking us to help them celebrate all things books and bookshops today. We love supporting you as much as you support us.
We hope everyone visited their local bookshop today and shared the love of bookshops around. Happy National Bookshop Day!
