Children's Story Telling Sessions

Are your kids mad about books or are they reluctant readers? Which ever is the case, interest in books should be encouraged, and the best way to do that, is to make it fun.

A big retail book shop like Waterstones should know how to do that. They are passionate about books of all kinds, and want to share that passion with the younger generations.

While I was in Kingston the other day, I discovered just one of the ways they do that. All around the Bentalls shop I saw posters advertising different in-store events. For example, on the 28th October, young pop sensation, Connor Maynard will be doing a book signing at 5.30pm. It is part of a promotion for the release of his book, Take Off, which gives fans in sight into the singer's rise to fame, and the success of his album of the same name. You need to buy the book to receive a wrist band that will grant you access to the event. It is best to arrive early as spaces are limited. Other signings in November will include David Alric, Rebecca Cobb, Fran Preston-Gannon, and Steve Backshall.

Another event I saw advertised was a sneak preview of the new Yu-gi-ho: Shadow Spectres on the 3rd November, which is between 10.30am-12.30pm. Tickets are 17.95, and includes five booster trading card packs that are not due to be released for a week later.

There are many other upcoming events as well, such as a Funnybones story time, a chance to meet Maisy Mouse, and creative writing workshops based around the Beast Quest and Wimpy Kid series, as well as Roald Dahl's Matilda.
