This Sunday, the big day out for kids: Children's Book Festival
Sunday 25th March, 10am to 4pm, on the lawns of the State Library of Victoria.
The Children’s Book Festival is back - bigger and better than ever, with more things to do than you can poke a puppet at. (Yes, we have puppets.) There are things that go (a fire truck), things that make noise (musical acts like the Mudcakes), things to create (workshops and drawing activities) and things to eat (a sausage sizzle). Best of all, there are things that tell stories: from the cheeky fun of Andy Griffiths and Leigh Hobbs, to the illustrative wizardry of Graeme Base and imaginative charm of Alison Lester.
And the weather’s looking good too, at an autumn-perfect 20 degrees â€“ but rain, hail or shine, we’ve catered for Melbourne’s fickle weather, with loads of fun activities under marquees on the lawns, as well as inside the State Library and the Wheeler Centre. It kicks off at 10am - so grab the small people in your life and come along for a big day out in the wonderful world of children's books.
