The event was at AtBristol, an interactive science museum, in the conference/event hall at the top of the building. After being welcomed and given our goody bag, we headed off to see Steam Dog Gromit by following his footprints.
They had loads of various children's activities available, including colouring-in and face painting. Tristan went with a Spiderman face.
They had story-telling by authors, including Michelle Robinson (Goodnight Digger), Jan Dobbins (Driving my Tractor) and Paul Stickland (Dinosaur Roar!). And we even met Peppa Pig!
This amazing event was hosted by Routes to Reading. Do check out their website and Facebook page. Their motto is to "Help parents to prepare their children to learn to read by instilling a love of books". Tristan and Scarlett have quite a collection of books, and they really enjoy nightly bedtime reading. I've always encouraged them both to read (or "read" the pictures), and it's also great for family snuggle time. Tristan's favourite book is The Very Hungry Caterpillar - he adores the illustrations, the food, the story, and of course, the end transformation into a beautiful butterfly.
Thank you for inviting us, but also for our goody bag full of books, posters, stickers bookmarks for the children (and chocolates for me!). Scarlett loves her bear ears for "We're going on a bear hunt" book.
