The Three Bears (sort of)

Scholastic NZ has a picture book for 3 to 7 year olds coming out in March by Yvonne Morrison and Donovan Bixley called The Three Bears (Sort Of). It’s a really funny take on the fairy tale: a parent telling a child the story, with interjections from the child throughout (‘but bears don’t eat porridge!’ ‘bears can’t speak English!’ etc).

We’ll be running a Three Bears Breakfast on Saturday or Sunday mornings in March at some of the bigger and more kid-friendly libraries around the country. Nestle have come to the party with food – it will be cold cereal (Cheerios) and Milo to save the librarians too much hassle cooking porridge! Meadowfresh have kindly supplied us with milk to go with the cereal/Milo. Scholastic are providing invitations/posters, a copy of the book to read aloud and a couple of copies of the book as giveaways/prizes, and a bunch of colouring-in for kids to do. The librarians we have on board are all real go-getters and they’ll be adding their own flavour to each event – decorations, costumes, you name it. Dates are as follows:

Blenheim: 10.00am, Sunday 3 March, Brayshaw Park
Wellington: 10.30am, Saturday 9 March, Wellington Central Library
Christchurch: 8.30am, Saturday 16 March, Shirley Library
Takapuna: 10.30am, Saturday 23 March, Takapuna Library
Taupo: 10.00am, Saturday 23 March, Taupo Library
