Petts Wood Library Chatterbooks Thursday Group
Bromley, Kent
Group status: We are Petts Wood Library Chatterbooks group and we meet once a month to discuss books, authors and take part in lots of fun activties

Here is some of our Chatterbooks Group!

We have just started shadowing Kate Greenaway and really enjoy looking at all the books on the shortlist. We take the books home, write a review on the website and draw a picture for the Greenaway gallery. Each month we come to discuss the books with each other and say which ones we enjoyed a lot. Often we have authors and illustrators come into the library to talk to us about their books!
