Being a self-published author means I am constantly creating awareness of my books and looking for opportunities for storytelling and engaging children in finding their own solutions. I am super-lucky to have a wonderful network of friends who are willing to help support me and my ideas (read, "antics").
Speaking of friends, one friend went to Berlin last week and took some books to donate or leave in random places for people to find.
As it happens, Berlin has a giving culture and there are such things as giving boxes around the city where people donate what they want and others take what they need, so finding random gifts is not unusual.
She left Peanut Monkey Up High in the branch of a tree and sat back to see if someone would find it.
How exciting watching two kids helping each other to reach the book.
