2012 National Year of Reading

 The National Year of Reading 2012 launch was on in Mandurah today, so we went along to listen to some readings from "The Magic Pudding", did some colouring, ate some cupcakes, had our photo taken for the newspaper and H had his face painted.
I was astounded to find out that 46% of Australians can't read very well (ie newspapers, recipes) see here for more on that, but I can understand why. 
We value reading and more importantly think it is fun, so spread the word...READING IS FUN!
 Some competition entries.

 I think he really enjoyed falling asleep.


  1. H's face painting looks amazing! By chance, we were involved with the same launch at our local library yesterday. Elly and I were taking back our library books as we do every Tuesday and before we knew it, we were hugging a big 'Book Bug' mascot, having our picture taken and being ushered off to do crafts and eat cake. Wasn't it a great day?!?! Nice to know we were involved in the same thing, albeit on different sides of the country! Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me but your photos are great. Looks like a great day!

  2. Thanks for coming to our launch of the National Year of Reading. We will be holding a variety of events over the year both in the Libraries and out in the community. Keep an eye on www.readallaboutitMandurah.blogspot.com to keep up with local events. cheers, Deidre

  3. Thank you so much for coming to our launch and publishing it on your blog. Glad that you all enjoyed yourselves and the 'face' looks amazing. Cathy
