Last week I went to St Brendan’s School to read There Was an Old Sailor as a preface to presenting bags of books to Grade 1 & 2 students. It was all part of the wonderful Books in Homes project, in this instance supported by funds from a Melbourne legal firm. The children were so enthusiastic and full of beans, as were their teachers. It was a delight to be there and to be part of it.

After the presentation, the children read from their new books.

And then there was pizza!
