Have you heard of the Premiers Reading Challenge? It is a great idea to encourage reading at home. Children just love to have stories read to them and the books that are selected are quality books. I'm not sure how many states offer this but it's a great list to help you choose good books .

What a wonderful day in the Blue Mountains! Lots of things going on with the focus squarely on childrens literature with lots of fun things to do. I especially enjoyed Emily Rodda, John Marsden and Cartoon Dave. It's easy to see why they are so popular. There were lots of eager children ready to hear a story and buy a book or two - so a great day for me too!
