A Book for your thoughts competition

Thankyou to the many people who entered the competition!
I am always astonished by the entries that come from all over Australia. Have you heard the song "I've been everywhere man"? Well, I sometimes think that Poppybooks has been everywhere.

Poppybooks has been to Jimboomba, Booragoon, Dongarra, Ngunnawal, Gwandalan, Jabiru, Goonellabah and Coolbellup just to name a few! What fantastic names
The website has received tremendous support and I'm overjoyed by the positive response we've had from people everywhere. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!
We will be posting the winners early next week on the competitions page.

The Christmas colouring competition will also start early in the week - so kids, I'll be eagerly watching the letterbox for your entries.

Many of you requested a newsletter and that should also be up and running within the next couple of weeks.

Keep smiling and checking in on the website,


This wonderful picture by Ruby Song was one of the entries in an art competition held earlier this year.
I have a folder of all the works of art that are sent to Poppybooks that I love to look at from time to time.
The detail in your picture is outstanding - well done Ruby!

'A book for your thoughts' competition

A big thankyou to all the many people who have entered the current competition. It is great to know that you like the website.
We will certainly endeavour to introduce as many of the suggestions as we can over time.
Don't forget to check in soon for the Christmas colouring-in competition.

How were your holidays?

I spent a wonderful week with a visit from my 6 year old granddaughter.
We squeezed as much fun as we possibly could into our days together, going to the beach, the movies, holding the cutest little day old ducklings and doing lots and lots of art and craft amongst lots of other things.
You can see from her colouring below, that even though she is only 6, my granddaughter is very good at art!

I love school holidays! How about you???
