It’s been a bit quiet on My Best Friends Are Book lately as I’ve been settling in to my new role as a school librarian. I’m catching up on books I’ve missed and I’ll try and post lots over the school holidays. Anyway, here is an exciting new competition for you!
I got to attend the IBBY Congress in Auckland last month and one of the authors that I met was graphic novelist Raina Telgemeier. Raina is the creator of such awesome graphic novels as Smile, Sisters and Drama, and she has also adapted some of The Babysitters Club stories into graphic novels. While at IBBY I got a copy of Smile signed (and doodled in) by Raina to give away on the blog.
All you have to do to enter is email email@example.com with the subject ‘Smile,’ along with your name and address. I will draw a winner at random. Competition closes Friday 30 September (NZ only).
Coding is one of those things that many kids, especially boys, are getting right into. Although I run this blog I know very little about the technical stuff behind it. I just don’t think my brain is wired that way. There are some great new books being written about the ins and outs of coding, including Get Coding, written Young Rewired State, a world-wide community of digital-makers aged 18 years and under.
Thanks to everyone who entered. The winner is Margaret.
The school holidays are here and there is nothing better to pass the time than curl up with a good book. It might be cold and wet outside but you can open a book and journey to somewhere warmer and make new friends along the way.
You can get your hands on a FREE book to enjoy in the school holidays. The catch is you don’t know what you’re going to get! I’m giving away some mystery kids and YA books, you just have to let me know whether you want kids or YA.
Thanks to everyone who entered. The winners are Kerry, Jessie, Lynley, Di, Jeanna, Debbie and Stacey. Enjoy your mystery reads.
