Well, what a week! Amidst all my usual tasks that keep me pretty busy, we have finally published our book, ‘All Aboard ……for fun and activities with The Old Station Nursery’. I think I’ve mentioned in previous posts that we had a lot of enjoyment taking photographs of the children at about 6 of the nurseries, all taking in part in different activities that have featured in the book. After a good 6 months of working on the project, with ace photographer and designer, Mazz, the last few weeks have involved a great deal of last minute work and then a slight pause once we finally went to print.
It was fantastic to see the first copy of the book and for my vision to actually finally be a reality. I’m delighted with the end result, as I feel it really celebrates all that is great about being with children – their enthusiasm, delight, inquisitiveness and as the front cover shows, just funny faces! We launched the book at Lincoln Book Festival at the weekend and it was good to hear some really enthusiastic comments and from a professional point of view it was lovely to sell a copy to a childminder, who thought that some of the ideas would come in handy in her work.
We’re now promoting it through the nurseries and through our website, so I hope we’ll share a bit of fun with lots of other parents, grandparents and anyone else who gets left ‘holding the baby’. I’ll let you know how it goes, but if I’ve whetted your appetite, do ask in the nurseries or look at the sales page on this website. As always, a huge thank you to my fabulous team who helped to make it all happen.
