First Bear and Duck Event!

So it’s been a long time since I wrote on here (for more recent updates it’s worth checking my Facebook page) however I felt yesterday’s event deserved a proper blog post!

The lovely staff at Carnegie Library Herne Hill, invited me to do a book reading in their children’s room followed by some Bear and Duck themed arts and crafts.

Here’s me doing some last minute preparations (calm before the storm).

I brought some early paintings in for the children to see how Bear and Duck came about then did my first official book read.

Safe to say one of the scarier things I’ve ever done!

(We had some keen audience members though which was great!)

The bear ears were very popular!

But the duck feet seemed to encouraged some great quaking noises!

The best bit was at the end of the morning when we were packing up and we heard Bear and Duck being read all over again.

Big thanks to Carnegie Library for having me. An even bigger thank you to my amazing friend Ellen for helping me to cut out all those templates and for the brilliant photography!
