Your pack will include:
- 1 x A3 poster for your library
- 1 x A4 sticker sheet (24 stickers)
Bicki Books Discussion Guide
- ‘Learning Latvian’ activity sheet
- ‘Make your own mini book’ origami activity, including origami tutorial
- Drawing and writing activities based around the books
There will also be a competition for the library with the best mini book display to win a visit from one of the illustrators!
