Author charms littlies
Kaha the Kea made an appearance at the Tokoroa Library last week, when popular children’s author Craig Smith stopped in.
Mr Smith armed with his guitar and accompanied by the characters in his books enthralled close to 200 children, who were delighted with the show. His 30-minute show included sing-along readings where children were selected to help with puppets.
Tokoroa librarian Bettina Kinchant went the extra mile dressing as Kaha the Kea which was a crowd favourite. Mr Smith also signed copies of his books for his pint sized fans.
Mr Smith wrote a number of children’s books which include, Kaha the Kea, The Wonky Donkey and Willbee the Bumble Bee.
