Join me in congratulating Serena Geddes on the launch of her first Author/Illustrated book, Rosie and Rasmus
I would like to say a huge congratulations to the winners, honorees, and nominees, your books are amazing and children across the world are very blessed to read your books. Each book is much deserving, each story unique and each opening children’s minds to the wonders of imagination and the beginning of their literacy journey.
I was very excited to attend the book launch – or as the wonderful host said to the children – the book birthday of I Just Ate My Friend. I love being able to support Australian authors, whether it by purchasing their books or in this case attending my first book launch. The first thing I did was purchase myself the book and the staff asked if I would like it signed…Yes Please! I was delighted to have a quick chat with the author Heidi McKinnon, who is incredibly humble, lovely to speak to and will delight us with another book in the future…although she is not sure what it will be about yet.
