The launch of Jenny Palmer's A Little ABC Book on Saturday morning at the Auckland Zoo could not have possibly gone better – with a colouring in table bristling with little busy bodies, a face painter with a queue stretching several kids long and Jenny performing action poems that even the parents were moving along to, it was a beautiful morning with the book launch to fit!
We ran a couple colouring in competitions that morning, one that involved drawing the face on a yeti and another that required little ones to colour in and tick off animals from the book as they went around the zoo, and it was an absolute delight to watch what they came up with!
Jenny had the traumatic task of having to choose only one winner from each category among all the incredible entires, but as hard as it was, we are happy to announce Flynn Campbell, age 6, and Sharon Song, age 2.5, as the winners of a copy of A Little ABC Book each! Congratulations to Flynn and Sharon, and well done to everyone else who coloured in too! Peep Flynn and Sharon's gorgeous illustrations below.
