Exciting New Website!

posted Mar 20, 2017, 1:01 PM by Reception @TMCS

There is a brilliant new New Zealand website celebrating children’s literature.

“The Sapling" is a website all about children’s books, because books grow humans. We take kids’ lit seriously, and we show it by commissioning essays, interviews, reviews and even crafts from some amazing kiwi writers and illustrators. You can find us at, and follow us on Facebook @thesaplingnz and Twitter @TheSaplingNZ. Join our conversation!”

Editor of “The Sapling”

Have a look.  Great for children, parents, librarians and teachers.
