A Visit to Canberra

Hi Everyone,
Poppy and the Bushfire is nearly ready and in the next week we will be putting a new colouring competition on the website to celebrate. Be sure to keep checking in!

The art competition is still running. This is the perfect weather to bring out those crayons, textas, scissors and glue and keep sending in those wonderful pieces of art that I am loving so much. Thankyou to all the children from all over Australia that have been posting their entries.

I'm about to pack my polar gear and my umbrella for a two week trip to Canberra!
I will be visiting some schools to meet some new friends and to talk about Poppy books.

I've been hearing on the news that we are expecting cyclones and already the rain has set in so I will have to be extra careful driving on the slippery roads with lots of wind and rain.
We do need the rain though and I expect that all the smiles from the beautiful Canberra children will brighten up the days :)

I'm sure I will have some exciting things to share with you soon so don't forget to check my blogs from time to time to find out news from Poppybooks.

Love to you all and keep warm....

Hi Kids

I wanted to show you two pictures sent to me by two of my grandchildren. What beautiful pictures, Lake and Lily!

Lily is only 8 months old and I believe this is her very first picture! Well done Lily!

Lake is 2 years old. His mummy gave him the colours and put the glue on the page but he did all the sticking by himself. Good job, Lake. Poppy is very proud!

Of course Lake and Lily's pictures can't be included in the judging of the competition but they have done such lovely work and I'm delighted that they had so much fun making their works of art.

Kids, do keep those fabulous pictures coming. Don't be afraid to give it a go. You have to be in it to win it!
