The two Children’s Chatterbooks groups at Askew Road Library have met twice since our Author launch event in October this year.

We have a dedicated wall area for our group to display work that has been created, a poster advertising the next couple of month’s meetings and a reading wall, where Children can post books they have read or Authors that they like so other Children can see.

In November We watched a video on the computer of Chris Riddell drawing an Illustration of a ghost mouse which features in his book “Goth Girl”. Group members then using a step by step guide drew their own ghost mouse and as a group we sent the pictures off and entered a competition to win a prize.

This month The Children created a hand made Christmas card for their favourite author.

The Christmas Cards were then put into envelopes with an accompanying letter and hopefully are well on their way to their destinations. A couple of them will be travelling air mail!
