Bromley, Kent
Group status: We are the Monday Petts Wood Library Chatterbooks Group and we love reading books and taking part in fun activities



We are about to start shadowing Kate Greenaway and are very excited about looking at the books on the shortlist. We will take the books home, write a review on the website and draw a picture for the Greenaway gallery. Each month we will come to discuss the books with each other and say which ones we enjoyed a lot.
