From Bordesley Village Primary:
Thank you again for today. The children and all the staff really enjoyed your sessions and thank you for staying for the book fair.
Our daughters enjoyed story time and chatting today. Thank you so much to Smyths Toys and Richard O’Neill. You have a great personality and you’re fantastic at keeping children engaged and interested!
Well worth the journey to Smyths toys Birstall today for a Book Week event. Six hours in a really cool toy shop telling and reading stories. Brilliant!
