Sam and I have been enjoying our newly found local library quite a bit this week and were delighted to find that Sam had a personal invitation to meet with the Mayor of Croydon on Saturday. Sam has been taking part in the national ‘Book crawl‘ initiative and as we had read through 4 books from our new found library he was entitled to a certificate which the Mayor himself wanted to come and present to him.
Also attending Sam’s certificate presentation was the Bookstart bear himself who was quite a draw for some of the other children who also happened to be in the library that day. We had some ‘rhyme time’ fun before the certificates where we all joined in some of our childhood songs and Sam got a rattle to shake while Rich helped him join in with some of the actions. Impressively the mayor did join in for some of the songs too and even sat down on the floor with the rest of us kids 🙂
