Treat for young fans of books
Young book lovers will descend on the region from Saturday for the annual Telling Tales in Balingup event.
The two-day festival from 10am to 4pm will see book characters come to life as event organisers, volunteers and Balingup community members dress in costume for a range of book-related activities.
Event co-organiser Helen Christensen said she was hoping for a “huge enthusiastic” response from children.
“It’s great to get children involved in reading and writing,” she said.
“We have a very good program with varied activities for children aged 4-14.”
Activities include story telling sessions, creative writing workshops, a grand parade from 12.30pm on Saturday, kite making, a play and WA authors and illustrators workshops.
