Books in Homes

 A few weeks ago, I was at an inner Melbourne school presenting books as part of the Books in Homes program. The program gives books to children who may have few books in their own homes.

 But first there was time to introduce them to ‘There Was an Old Sailor’. In this I was ably assisted by two students: a sailor-feeder and a page-turner Captain.

It was hilarious.

 Then it was time for the main event: handing out the bags.

The students were allowed to look into their bags, but it was suggested they not pull the books out until they got home.
Some didn’t make it quite that far.
