The Megumi and the Bear Canberra launch is just eight sleeps away and I’m starting to feel that inevitable mixture of nervous excitement. Planning a kids book launch is like planning a kids party—there’s an awful lot to do—but it’s wicked fun. Take last night when Meg from The Teddy Bear Shop dropped off this massive bag of teddy bears. Fifty of the softest little guys, each with their own birth certificate. My kids went goggle-eyed. Thanks to The Teddy Bear Shop’s generosity we get to hand these out at the launch with every book purchase. Now, how cool is that?
Hope to see some of you there with kids attached. It’s on Saturday 15 June, 2 pm at Paperchain Bookstore. They’ll also be goodie bags for all the kids attending, a lucky door prize, lots of yummy food, craft activities, and a book reading. RSVP to Paperchain on firstname.lastname@example.org or 6295 6723. It’s gonna be fun!
