Fully Booked
Manor Park,
Group status: .
Fully Booked began with my son so he could have the chance to Shadow Carnegie because his school did not take part in the Shadowing Scheme. Then it gave the opportunity to nephews and nieces to take part. For the past two years my eldest grandson shadowed by reviewing some of the Greenaway books. This year he will be joined by his younger brother. Although we are a bit behind this year, watch this space. Fully Booked is proud to present the third generation! Also many thanks to Newham Public Libraries for providing access to the Carnegie books for the third year running.

Wed Wabbit by Dana
What do you write in a review of a book where the last two words are "farts" and "hearts"? A book full of laughs and psycho babble. It reminded me a . . .
