Celebrating World Book Day at Llanelli Library

A very big THANK YOU to Llanelli Library (especially Tracey, Giovanna and Tania) for inviting me to help celebrate World Book Day with them. Miss Owen’s lovely Year 1 class from Bigyn School came along to listen to my stories and take part in a making Welsh cakes role-play. It was great fun. Well done everyone!

Half-term reading session at Cardiff Central Library

From Cardiff Central Library’s Facebook page:
Wendy White joined us in the children’s library this half-term, to read from her first collection of stories, Welsh cakes and custard, about Betsi Wyn and Emyr Rhys two young children living in Wales. Stories about school dinners, dancing in the Eisteddfod and pirate parties were greatly enjoyed by the children and their parents who were then invited to tuck into Welsh cakes provided by Wendy.

Thank you to Wendy White for giving us a taste of her first newly published book for children.
