Book Bus at the Lake of Stars Festival

LAKE OF STARS: Yellow Flip-Flops!

Yellow.  When you see bright yellow at this year’s festival, it’s likely to be one of the Book Bus team and you can join in. Leading up to the festival we’ll be giving out 10,000 books to the children we work with in Malawi and to celebrate this, the Book Bus will be at the festival with activities and events for you to join in with.

Swap your Flip-Flops.  Instead of taking that extra pair of flip-flops, bring a couple of children’s books or some art materials.  Donate them at the stand and we’ll be able to pass them on to the local children.

Get arty.  We’ll be making puppets, painting boxes for reading corners, sewing story sacks, creating books out of recycled materials; lots of treasures that we’ll be able to give to the local schools to get the kids reading.

Chill out.  In the cool of our canopy, make a friendship bracelet, send a postcard home, listen to stories and enjoy some local children’s performances.

We look forward to seeing you there.  Just remember yellow flip-flops!
