Travelling Books: Have you found one?  ►Enter the draw  -  ►Read news articles 

Found at the Fiji Beach Resort and Spa, Denarau, Fiji: 'Never Go Back' by Lee Childs - I was so thrilled to pick up the book and realise it is a 'Travelling Book'. Good on you I hope they are going far and wide.
Found in the Te Roroa Waipoua Forest: 'Digging up the Past -  Archaeology for the Young and Curious' - We were travelling around NZ, we are from Austria. Our children were so fascinated by the book that we tried to buy it, and then we saw it is a Travelling book, so we invited it to Austria. We are working with it, reading and digging, and we want to introduce the idea, to our school. Thanks for it.

Found in Invercargill: ‘99 Tadpoles Find a New Home’  Loved the book and have left it in Chester UK.

Found in New Plymouth: ‘Bravo’  I love these books. I took Bravo to preschool and the teachers read it to all the kids.

Found in Gisborne: ‘The Enchanted Flute’, by James Norcliffe.  Awesome. I can't wait to finish reading the book so I can leave it somewhere for someone else to read.
